Canyon Light, 5x7, Acrylic/Canvas Panel

This is the Gunnison River's Black Canyon, upstream from the North Rim. It's fun to cram so much space into such a small format.

Slate River Spring, 5x7, Acrylic/Canvas

The Slate River Valley, my second favorite valley in the world. The glaciation is so evident on the valley walls that it looks like they just receded yesterday.

Light in the Dark, 4x6, A/C

I like this one except for the fact that the lamp is dead center of the painting. I know better than that. It didn't start out there...it just keep migrating right as i tried to get the shade to glow. I'll probably try this again with a better composition, maybe in a square format with more focus on the wall.

Salmon River Hills 2, 6x8, Acrylic/Canvas Panel

Another piece from along the Salmon. This one is right before the climb up Whitebird Hill, where Volkswagen vans go to die.

Salmon River Hills, 6x8, Acrylic/Canvas

Afternoon light along the Salmon River. This is on the main fork, just north of Riggins, Idaho. There's some unique light there, so I may do a small series of these.

A quick study of a front passing over Paradise Ridge. I have a large piece that is along these lines. Check it out at www.zthurmondfineart.com

Spring in the Valley, 7x5, Acrylic/Board

Maybe it's because I don't have a lawn, but I've always felt that dandelions have gotten a bad rap. I mean, even if they only look like this for a few weeks each spring, it's a pretty beautiful few weeks.
