This is a commissioned Oil Painting with the view looking down on Bear Creek which is N E of Dubois. Image size is 30"x40". Was challenging but enjoyable to do with the myriads of wildflowers involved. Dominated by blue Lupine and the Wyoming state flower, Indian Paintbrush which is a parasitic flower. I have thrown in some yellow violets and white lousewort.
Now it is-get busy time-on the 3d commission I am doing which I posted incomplete some time ago. BOMBER BASIN COUGAR. I will be posting on days I work on it so you can watch the progress as it evolves.
It is August and I have just sold this painting to a collector from Florida. I think it has found a good home.

After a month of painting, I have finally completed two of the three major commission paintings I have been working on. This is a view of the meadows and ranch house of Bert and Leigh Tuckey east of Dubois on the Wind River Reservation. It is a beautiful ranch area and would like to do a number of other paintings from this ranch. This is an oil painting image size 24"x36".
