I have begun this 8"x10" Oil of an Aspen. Interested in the light on the tree trunk and leaves. We'll see how it progresses.

I have been working on some photo-realist type of paintings and have just finished this of a Copper Butterfly[there are many varieties of Coppers]sitting on a rock along the backwaters of a little stream. It is an 8"x10" Oil Painting.

I continue to spend quite a bit of time in the mountains[research?]and for the second time in the last two weeks I hiked into Lake Louise, about a 6-7 mile[round trip]pretty physical hike so I am getting my exercise too. Will post this hiking adventure probably in the next week as I find time to do so. It is a pretty fantastic hike with waterfalls galore and this as the end of trail reward.
