Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Another One from Scotchman Peaks Paint Out

This is the piece I started Saturday morning at the Plein Air event. I felt it needed a little more something than what I got on location.

I've bumped up contrast a tiny bit. I resisted doing much to the piece, so perhaps this is enough to call it done.

it's done. I love the descriptive light on the contours of the mountain.

Hilda, Thanks. I wish you could've joined us during the paint out.

Mary, I'm pleased to know you noticed that! The light was what got my attention at the scene.
