I love the big skies of the West and this one is 30 x 40 on gallery wrap canvas.
I have more to complete, but I'm revisiting some themes that I had to put aside
for awhile due to other life concerns. This is one that is not going out of style.
It's a window on a big world with hopes and dreams for a New Year.

is a 9 x 12 on location at Independence Pass the last week of September.
Beautiful drive, sun was in and out of the clouds, the contrast between back lit aspen and the rest of the surrounding landscape is too much range for a camera to capture well. These were in the shade of a large cloud when I painted them and allowed for more subtle variation in color. Painting on location with all the sensations of sounds of birds, passing cars, breeze, changing light, hikers with dogs and kids passing by, even bugs and curious wildlife, adds another dimension of life to my work. Same old saw, the more you look, the more you see. The more there is to see on location!

This is "Snowy Bells" of a trip to Maroon Bells 6 x 8 oil painting done on location the last weekend of September.
Yes, I'm still painting! Still traveling whenever I can and painting the beauty of nature!
