Just had to post this phenomenal rainbow from behind our gallery this evening. About as spectacular as they come. My camera lens on wide angle was still unable to capture the enormous bow that stretched completely from ground to ground in a beautiful arc. A second rainbow just above was nearly as well defined but had disapated by the time I got my camera and got out the back door.

I have been spending quite a bit of time in the mountains the past week with a little bit of guiding thrown in along with a very busy gallery I have not had a lot of time at the easle but I have begun several oil paintings including this 18"x24" Oil on Canvas. I began with an acrylic underpainting as I have been doing recently and now am using oil and beginning my detasil work. It is from several photographs of Bear Creek NE of Dubois that I took last fall. Such a beautiful ara in the fall with cottonwoods, Spruce and Pine.
