Today I worked pretty diligently on my Aspen painting and have pretty well finished it. I see a few touchups I have to attend to but it is essentially finished.
15"x20" Gouache/Acrylic. on illustration board.
I see no problems in painting the acrylic over the thin washes of Gouache. That has been a question and only time will tell if that is a problem.

Spent the last few days in Casper where I had my annual cancer checkup which came out great. A OK. Spent a few days with family and returned yesterday stopping off in Shoshoni, Wyoming where we watched our grandson play football for the Rocky Mountain Grizzlies against the Shoshoni Wranglers. He is a sophomore and therefor only gets to play back-up but with a lopsided score by halftime he and other underclassmen were able to get a lot of playing time during the 2nd half. He plays halfback and linebacker on defense where he did great in both categories even scoring a touchdown. A great looking fellow[O K I am biased]his real game is basketball where all are expecting great things from him.
