Color Float

I wanted to try a new technique and experiment a little. This also served the purpose of covering up an ugly painting and saving the panel.

Funny Face

This was a curious calf who came to visit while a friend and I were out painting last year. I thought he was really cute so I took a picture for a later painting.

Waiting Patiently

This scene was just up from my house this morning.

An Apple a Day

Einstein once said, "Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving." Painting is like that, you have to keep practicing to do well. I "skinned my knees" because I didn't get to practice much last week so I didn't have anything good to show for it. I wiped at least 4 paintings and this one came close to getting it as well. I decided to do something simple again to get myself going. So an apple...

Across the Fields

It's snowing today so I did one out my front window using a long format.

Gray Skies at Trout Lake

I wanted to play with the format and do a long skinny piece. This area lends itself well to that format. I really like this and hope to do a larger one.

A Gray Day

I went looking for falling snow but it was just overcast and gray. I had been intrigued with the look of snow and rocks and liked the simpleness of this scene. It was heavily overcast and everything was tints of gray. It made it hard to see my path in the snow, everything white on white.

LaPlata's over the hill

This is one I did before all the snow came. I still want to rework color and clean it up a bit.

Raven Guard

I had been wanting to draw a raven again and found a great place where they hang out. It would ruin the illusion if I told you what he was guarding though.
