Loveland Lake

Saturday, November 30, 2013

Spent yesterday painting at one of my favorite locations in Loveland, Co. While working I was approached by an elderly lady asking if she could take my picture. Like any artist I said "Sure, go ahead". She just looked at me for the longest time and finally asked "Well, do you have a camera?" I handed her my phone and she proceeded to take about 50 photos all the while complaining that my flash didn't work. Finally someone else drove up and she rushed off asking them "Would you like your picture taken?" Needless to say...a fun day!

Three more studies

Friday, November 8, 2013
Three small recent oil studies...the first painting is a 6x8 study of the intersection at Yellowstone and Vandehei in Cheyenne just before one of our last storms. The second one is a 6x8 one of the trees in our backyard (it's always fun to do after the first snow) and the last one, a 5x7 is up in the Snowy Range outside of Laramie.

Plein air Studies

Monday, November 4, 2013
 A couple of plein air studies from yesterday. The first one is Swan's Ranch just south of Cheyenne. It was so windy I had to have one hand on the easel to keep it from blowing to Nebraska. The second painting is the Riverbend Ponds in Fort Collins, Co....the weather there was just beautiful. Funny how 40 miles makes such a difference. Both paintings are 6"x8", oils.
