Prairie Sunrise


A spectacular Colorado prairie sunrise. The photo doesn't do the painting justice. I was going to wipe this one but decided to try using a fan brush to feather the edges. That opened up new possibilities and saved the day. Another example of "Don't give up too soon!" This is an 8 x 16 inch oil available in my Etsy shop.

Deer in Tall Grass


These deer were grazing just outside an aspen grove next to the road that enters the North Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. I was struck by how well hidden they were in the grass almost disappearing when their heads were down. Beautiful creatures in beautiful light. This painting is available in my Etsy shop.
