Bobcat Study

     There is a game farm visiting our area, Triple D Game Farm, that you pay to photograph their animals.  They will be in the area until the 25th of April if anyone is interested.  I could only afford a little bit but I got some nice reference material.  This is Captain Baily...I think.  A handsome devil and a great poser.  This came up at a time when I was having trouble painting anything, a true mental block that was broken, thankfully, by this photo op.

Deep into Winter

     This is from reference material I did last year.  I really liked this scene and wanted to do a larger elongated version.  Since I had been away from the easel for a few weeks, I thought a nice winter tonal would ease me back into painting.   This is a farm in the Dolores river valley that has many ancient buildings and is always a delight to visit.
