For some reason, my blog isn't playing nice tonight. I can't get the text in the right place. So this will be a quick post. I painted this 8x10 off and on most of the day. I really like the way it turned out. I decided to go with orangish grasses in the foreground. I tied the orange in by adding some in the trees and the distant mountain. Snow is fun...
This painting will be up for auction at my gallery, dailypaintworks.com, soon, The starting bid will be $75.

For tomorrows painting I am thinking about painting a mountain stream with some fall foliage. I'm ready for some cooler weather. It's going to be 103 today in Scottsdale.
I am so happy, I have two bids on my painting through my online gallery. I thought it would take longer to sell my work. Thanks for reading and this painting will be up for auction soon with a starting bid of $75. Dailypaintworks.com It could be yours.

I used a photo reference to paint this one. The light was intriguing for me. I especially like the thin slice of light in the foreground. Check it out in my auction at dailypaintworks.com tomorrow.
I live in Scottsdale now and winter is our best time of year. I look forward to painting outside. This is a good size painting and it will be up for auction on dpw.com tomorrow probably with my regular starting bid price of $75. Thanks for reading and join my email list

This painting is of a distant mesa north of town. I improvised the foreground. But as painters we have all the power. In my pre painting life, I was a photographer and I was alway frustrated with not being able to change key elements in the landscape. Granted I was taking picture in the 80's, before photoshop. I had to do manipulations in the darkroom. I didn't have Ansel Adams skills.
This painting will be up for auction on dailypaintworks.com with a starting bid of $75. That is when I can figure it out.
