Kickin' Up the Dust

This big guy lives down the road from me and was nice enough to hang around so I could get some photos and sketches of him.  Like most bulls they have to bellow, rub and kick up some dust to show how tough they are this time of year.

I am working on a larger version of this and needed to work out a few details so I painted this one.

Spring in the High Country

I went up to Lizard Head pass today to see how much snow is left up there.  It was a beautiful day so I set up and painted.  There were a few clouds casting shadows on the snow.  I am not sure what peak this is but it is near Vermillion peak.

Trout Study

We were supposed to be on Spring Break but my son and I came down with, I think, food poisoning.  We were pretty sick for a couple of days but are now recovering.  Since I was around I went off to do "portrait Wednesday".  Well the model must have ate at the same place because she was out too.

Since that was not an option we went down to the river near the fish hatchery.  Though the intention was maybe some river scene we ended up mesmerized by the beautiful fish at the hatchery and worked there instead.
