Another Painting Finished

Just finished putting the last touches on this piece. The scene is from Plain City, Utah of an empty corn field, all that is left from the melted snow is the puddle in the foreground. I enjoyed painting the dramatic sky with simple brushstrokes and adding the yellow light in the center. It's an 8x10 oil on panel.

Fun to Apply Thick, Bold Brushstrokes

This piece went relatively fast, painting wet on wet with bold brushstrokes. This is a picture of the high Uintahs in Utah. The lakes up in the forest are always so quite and still. This is an 8x10 oil on panel.

Along with this painting "Lone Tree" was also accepted, which I will post later. I was thrilled to have two pieces get into the show. This piece is 18"x24" oil on canvas.

Park City Main Street Shack

Thought you would enjoy seeing a Park City scene located on the backside of the street. It's a small shack among the Old Town houses. I hope they perserve these old crumbling buildings. I think it adds to the city's character. This is 8x10 oil on panel.

Painting of the Park City Ski Runs

The lovely ski runs of Park City. This picture is both of Park City Ski Resort and the Park City Golf Course at just the beginning of Fall. I was attracted to the strong yellow-green color of the grass in the foreground. It was fun to paint the Alpine Slide. I like to paint the slide, not go down it....it's the speed that scares me and then I hold up everyone behind me everytime! This picture is a 24"x36" oil on canvas.

Ghost Town School House

I took a trip up to Idaho a few weeks ago and went to the ghost town of Chester Field, Idaho. I found this empty school house in the area and decided to do a small painting of it. I think I will go back up to the area and find more buildings to paint. It's close to Lava Hot Springs, so I will stay there and go to the hot springs. I love these small towns in Idaho!
