Well ladies and gentlemen. Looks like I join the ranks of millions of other out of work Americans. There’s a little work to finish up Monday morning then it’s on to a long long holiday.
Two things about that. It’s good and it’s bad. It’s good I get to paint more and have the rest I’ve needed for quite a while. It’s bad I have to tighten my belt (probably should anyway) and deplete a savings I’ve been a long time building.(that sucks)
Oh well. As they say:
That’s the way it goes, first your money then your clothes. 🙂
Above is the piece I worked on over the Thanksgiving weekend. It was one of those pieces that fell together and made time cease to exist. Hours later seemed like minutes and I only had to wipe off a tiny bit for do overs. I worked from a photograph taken in Rocky mountain National Park a couple of years ago. The photo is of my stand of trees in Endo Valley. I reversed the image before painting.
And this next one is a progression, sort of.
There are similarities to the composition of the snow scene and is heavily under the influence of a new palette.
I wasn’t kidding when I said it was a “sort of” progression. 🙂
Night all, stay tuned!!
