Book Cliffs

We were traveling up to Park City, UT, and on the way we passed the Book Cliffs.  Clouds were rolling in and the lighting was beautiful, highlighting and darkening the cliffs in various areas.  My iced tea substituted for water.  This was quickie, painted in the car, on the move. (I promise, I wasn't driving!)

An Old Crazy Crawler

Sorry I haven't posted as often lately.  I am working on a commission right now but hope do be done with it soon.  It is a present so I can't post it yet.  I will try and at least post some "quickies" in between.

I had picked up this old lure from a yard sale in Dolores.  It has some paint missing and scuffs that, I like to think, was from some huge fish it caught.  Carved from wood, hand painted and applied decals it reminds me of the lures in my dad's old fishing box, a very nice memory.

Young Fancy Dancer

This youngster was a "fancy dancer" last year at the Cortez Cultural Center.  Those feathers bounce and flow as they dance, it is quite a treat to see.

Cat Skull and Bowl

I had a hard time getting going this morning and nothing was coming easy.  I finally settled on this scene to work on white objects.  Hopefully I'll get some sleep tonight and be better tomorrow.
