Lady with the Red Earring

Every Wednesday is an open portrait group in Durango, which I have recently been attending.  I haven't done any portraits in oil for a very long time and most are not worthy of seeing.  This was yesterdays attempt and since I like it enough I thought I would post it.

Old Timer

The gentleman that cuts our hay has this really great old tractor that I just love.  I was in luck today because he left it sitting here last night and I jumped on the chance, first thing this morning, to paint it.  It kind of reminds me of a red grasshopper.  I highly suspect that cushy seat is not a standard issue on these things.

The Old Church

This is an old church over in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.  I was close enough to the hot springs, and down wind, to catch a whiff of that strong sulfur smell while I painted this.  Luckily the wind would change from time to time.

Mossy Pond

This pond is next to Rudy's Barn and I have been wanting to paint it for some time.  I love the moss on top with reflections in the water peeking through.
