Blocking In...

...the colors and shapes on this newest painting.  


And with a little more work, this first layer is complete and the painting is well on its way!


It’s Done!

And best yet, it has already found a home. But drop by RLS Gallery anytime in the next month or so to see it in person!

I’ve Mixed...

...all the color and am ready to make the final push to finish this layer of paint. Now hopefully I've mixed enough! 


I'm Spending My Days...

...watching the grass grow, in one inch strips, from top to bottom and left to right. But seeing the difference from the first layer to the second makes me realize how fun this painting will be when done.


A progression...

...of my latest painting. It starts with the sky painted over the contour line like transfer sketch. Next in the upper right, most of the first layer complete. In the lower left, the second layer of paint minus the marsh foreground is done. Finally the second layer of paint complete in the lower right. I learned something at the very end of this painting, which I am excited to put to use in my next, much larger project.
