The above reference photo is one I took while in Utah; I am currently working on a 6" x 8" oil painting of the woman in pink with the gorgeous Wasatch mountains in the background. If this small work turns out well, I may do a larger version soon. Below is another reference photograph I took in Utah that shows a little garden in the foreground; this is another 6" x 8" oil painting currently in progress.
I have not worked on a 16" x 20" panel in ages and I am quite excited about the painting in progress now that is that size. It is an oil landscape on panel and I took the reference photo below for it near Taos, New Mexico.
The 4th oil painting now in progress is a landscape of Frijoles Creek in Bandelier National Park. I may add a mule deer to this painting and tone down the green to make it look more like the Fall season. See the photo below.
Please check back very soon to view the completed paintings. I just wanted to let you know I am slaving away at the easel and enjoying every minute of it. :-D
