thank you Jennifer. I really strive to work light into my work. Trying blues in a way that is not hokey looking. I want it as close to natural as i can get it and yet not quite be a photograph. In this country it is so dry there is a real absence of atmosphere. I see so many artists who portray so much atmosphere into their western scenes and I just don't see it. I try to be honest with what I am doing letting the drawing, values and composition read right to be a painting.
