The view from the saddle above Maxwell Lake, in northeast Oregon's Wallowas. It's a fun challenge to cram mountains onto postcards. Maybe I should try to paint a thimble on a six foot canvas, to see what it's like to go the other way...but I'd rather paint mountains.
Bale stacks at the I-Bar ranch in Gunnison. There is a hay shed there where I saw the greatest John Denver tribute concert ever. This is on the daily dog-walk route out to a meandering stretch of Tomichi Creek...not bad for a 15 minute walk.

I am using this blog as a catalyst, to inspire me to paint every day. There are forms, compositions and color juxtapositions everywhere i look, provided that i take the time to do so. So if you see that i haven't posted a painting in several days, leave me a comment deriding me for my laziness and lack of artistic conviction. I have no excuse not to put brush to canvas, regardless of the subject matter around me. I hope you enjoy the results.
