I need to do some fine tuning on this one tomorrow after it dries a bit. Sawtooth ridge is often hiked by climbers to go from Mt. Evans to Mt. Bierstadt. Both mountains are 14ers. Looks pretty scary to me, but my climber son has done it.

Days 23 – 25 ~ Sunset on the Prairie

I worked on this commission for these last few days so I’m counting it for three days… Nice we can make up our own rules… 🙂

I have a tad more work to do on the sky… This is an 18″ diameter painting that my client wanted to fit in a frame that she had. She gave me a photo of what she wanted. The colors in this photo are not quite right, but you get the idea.

Day 4 ~ Be Still and Know

This is really a self portrait… I slipped on a black skirt and my barn boots one day, because my daughter offered to take some pictures of the shawl  I had just finished knitting. Love the way this picture turned out so I stored it away to paint it someday. First self portrait I’ve ever done.

I thought the painting had an contemplative feel to it. When the song “Be Still and Know” came on my Pandora station, I knew that was the title for it. 🙂

Day 2 ~ Misty Morning

Have a few things left to do on this one, but I’m pretty happy with it. This is the closest I get to plein aire in the summer here in Oklahoma. It’s usually too hot and there are too many chiggers and ticks in the grass… But on my morning walk I made a quick sketch and took a reference photo. 🙂
