With winter coming to an end I am always looking for signs of Spring. In this scene the bushes turning red and the water in the river starting to melt just said Spring to me. Of course using the Tetons as a background is always nice. It will be awhile before the snow melts up there.
Number 3 in the cowboy series. Calf roping is a lot of fun to watch and takes a lot of skill and practice. I never tried it but was always impressed by those that do it.
Another painting in my cowboy series. This one reminds me of the great adventures when I was younger and had horses to carry my camping gear. When I look at this scene I can smell the fresh air and get a relaxed feeling. A slower less stressful time.
This painting is the start of a cowboy series and a change in painting style. Trying to loosen up my paintings. Bear with me while I continue on this new journey.

Wheat fields above Palisades Creek. This was done with the plein air group
I enjoy just sitting along this creek listening to the sound of water running over the rocks.
This painting was a quick study of early morning at Sawmill Creek in the Palisades area. I tried to capture the cold on a bright sunshiny morning in November.
