Spring, Big Horn River

Spring, Big Horn River     oil      9" x 12"

We recently returned from the Big Horn River in Montana. I got several photos of fly fishers and this maroon red boat was a beautiful shape against the blues and greens of the landscape. I painted this one the day after taking the photo, while it was fresh in my mind and I had a good idea of what I wanted in the finish.

Mums                  oil                7" x 9"
A small still life to get me thinking about spring! This is a set up with one of my favorite bowls and blue vase. My limited palette here was cad yellow light, permanent rose and ultramarine blue. Once again, I worked off of a light gray background to gauge values.
