Cameron Bluff #2, Mt. Magazine, Logan County

Cameron Bluff #2
11X14, Oil on Canvas

I hope everyone had a happy holiday season and the upcoming new year brings happiness and health!  I've been on the East Coast so I have some new material to paint.  Those will eventually be shown on my other blog.  

This is a larger version of the plein air painting I did of Cameron Bluff on Mt. Magazine a few months ago.  I was working to emphasize colors I liked in the original while adding more dimensionality.  I see some possibilities for even larger compositions here but that will have to wait.

My New Year's resolution artwise will be to paint 2 paintings per week in the coming year.  Any size counts and I will also take occasional vacation weeks.  I also hope to try to have this project half done by the end of 2011.  I think that is totally feasible but just difficult enough to make it a challenge.


  1. I like the brush work in the rock and particularly where it intersects with the foreground. Nice work.

  2. Thanks Dave, the rock area is where I'd like to investigate further on a larger piece.
