Another painting of a red finch sunning himself on a tree top. I am pleased with this painting. I was able to loosen up and not be as careful. Doesn't seem logical but that usually makes for a better end result. It's about letting the paint be paint. This a is a 6 x 6 inch oil available in my Etsy shop for $100.

Another painting based on our bison tour at the Zapata Ranch last spring. The hardest part of this painting for me was the foreground grass. I wiped it out a few times. I didn't want so much detail that it became a distraction from the real focus. I tend to put in too much detail. The other challenge was to make the bison in the back look like it's further back. This is a 6 x 9 inch framed oil painting and is available for $175 at the John Deaux Gallery in Pueblo, CO. Call the gallery or email me if you're interested in buying this painting.

This painting is of one of the many spectacular sunsets we see from our new location. This 6.5 x 10 inch framed oil painting sold for $200 as soon as it got to the local Pueblo gallery but I'm putting it online anyway. My 2015 painting plan is to focus on the prairie sky and sunsets. I have so many ideas for paintings I know I could easily spend the rest of my life working on them.

Colorado has 300 days of sunshine a year. Even though it can be very cold outside, the sun is usually shining. This red house finch and his pals were taking advantage of the sunshine on a cold day last week sitting on the top of a pine tree and soaking up the rays. This painting is available unframed in my Etsy shop. Click here to purchase. To see my other available paintings click here.
