I have been working on a series of Wildflower Paintings. I have just finished this 16x20 Oil I call MOUNTAIN STREAM. It is more about the boulders and stream than the flower pieces I am working on but is so typical of the headwater streams of our area. Boulders, Willows and small cascading streams. When I first started the painting I was fighting the left side as I felt it needed something of interest and finally settled on the pink Monkey Flower so prevalent in this environment.
It is years end and my wife Vicki who is a brilliant book keeper for the local lumber yard in Dubois is indespensible for the Silver Sage Gallery in doing their books. She is pretty busy these days getting the Gallery taxes ready for that wonderful day, April 15. Sure is messing up her weekends.
