March 7

I'm calling this one done.  It will be destined to be an entry in a very specific show which I have wanted to enter for several years but have never had a piece that fit the very specific requirements.  I have until the middle of the summer to come up with two more that meet the requirements and I can finally enter!

I spent my studio time last night by prepping and entering two other shows.  One of these is a fairly prestigious show that I have also wanted to enter for several years but I have never overcome the fear of rejection before.

March 2

Here is another one that started life as a plein air.  I think it was early December when I went out and started this one.  It was a cold and windy day and I was using the Golden Open Acrylic.  I was really extremely please with my start on this but became quickly disappointed as I tried to work it to completion.  I am using oils in the studio to finish it out.

March 1

This one was started on site at Falling Water Falls the week after I broke my wrist.  This was the third time I've painted here.  This one will still need a bit more work but it's starting to take shape.

Leap Day Progress

I worked on a piece I started in plein air a few weeks ago in the Richland Creek Wilderness.  It was really cold and windy up on the top of the hill and I only had time and endurance to capture the basic color notes of the sky.
