Misty Mountains

     The clouds were low the other day, a sure sign of colder weather coming.  I ran up to Lizard Head pass to catch them hanging in between the mountains and I was not disappointed.  The clouds usually change fast but this scene stayed somewhat similar for a while.  I love this area and this particular morning was an exceptional view.  I still have a couple of refinements to do, but it is mostly done.

Clouds over the Mountains

The clouds were building above Ute Mountain the other day and I was captivated by the view.  I did a very small, fast, oil sketch to catch the colors and work out the composition, I may post the little one too.  Then I started on this.  I had to work fast because the clouds, of course, are constantly changing.  I also took some photos to help save some information because storms were building around me as well lightning and all.

The Red Barn

     This is a wedding present for a dear friend's daughter.  She is getting married in a barn in memory of her mother...who loved barns.  I have always admired this one and hope it will always bring fond memories of her mom.

Wow, where did the summer go.  I got so busy with obligations that I didn't get much time to paint.  With September here, things are quieting down and I am ready to paint.  The Durango group is doing their open portrait on Tuesdays this fall from 9am to noon and I couldn't wait to attend.

I wish I would have gotten this lovely girl's name, I was happy to paint her.
