UNDER THE ASPENS 12"X16" Oil Painting I have been working on a number of paintings and it seems they are all coming finished about the same time. I love doing Aspens with their textures and individual characteristics. firstname.lastname@example.org
Last night was the opening of the National Wind River Valley Art Show. I did pretty good in the judging by receiving 2nd place in Oil for my painting, DuNoir River and 2nd place in Watercolor for Lake Marie as well as an honorable mention in Watercolor for my just finished Double Cabins Painting.
DOUBLE CABINS 15"x28: Gouache Watercolor Painting This is a painting depicting the Double Cabins area north of Dubois, Wyoming. Early morning finds the high peaks surrounding this spectcular valley in fog and morning haze. This has to be one of the most beautiful places in America. It got its name from two fur trappers in earlier times who built a cabin there for a winter of trapping. Towards Christmas they got to fighting amongst themselves and first drew a line in the middle of the cabin with each not to cross that line. It was soon decided tht just was not going to work so one of them decided he would move out and down river a ways where he built a cabin of his own. It was soon taken over by Pack Rats and in desperation he burned it to the ground announcing no Pack Rat would ever live there again.
