Shown below is stage 2 of my oil painting of Pinnacle Buttes in Wyoming.

16" x 20" on gessobord
I wish now I had chosen an 18 x 24 canvas or preferably a 15" x 30" size for this work. The mountains are way too large here and much work needs to be done.
Below is stages 2 and 3 of the WIP of Wind River #2 oil painting.

The orange hills need quite a bit of toning down. I am rather excited about this work.
"Bring something new, something beautiful and something filled with light into the world." This art quote by Ross Bleckner could also very well apply in a spiritual sense as well. When you think about it, art can be rather a type of a spiritual experience. I feel extremely spiritual and/or I am reminded of the Creator especially when I paint clouds. Just a note, I have been considering doing a series of sky paintings, or perhaps with some landscape or ocean showing in the work but with the sky predominating.
I am reminded here of another quotation, this time by Martin Kippenberger: "A good artist has less time than ideas." I have so many ideas for new works, but there will never be enough time to complete or begin most of them. Time is short and I am getting older.
