"study for Rocky Mountain Hike" 10x8 oil
As promised, here is the study I painted from a series of photos taken in July 2010 when Russ, Brian and I were hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park.

And here is the larger painting based on the study. I used the same palette of paint for both paintings - and the same brush! Both were painted in one, long painting session each; the study on a Sat and the larger one the day after. With the latest Zac Brown live cd blasting away!
I can't wait to frame both of these - they will hang side-by-side in my solo show in January; the show has the theme "A Passion for the Western Landscape". And I think one of these will be on the show postcard. hmm... which one?
