Somewhere In Wyoming

16 x 20 pastel on board. I love painting our vast Wyoming landscapes, something that needs to be preserved from development.  Had to include a pronghorn....just because they are always a part of the real life scene.

High Water Dusk

 8 x 10 pastel.  I am pretty pleased with this one.  I think I captured the essence of the scene I was trying to convey, especially regarding the light.

Morning On the River Walk (San Antonio)

 8 x 10 pastel. Had a fun time painting this piece.  Definitely a subject I don't normally do.  But it was enjoyable to use those bright, bold, high chroma colors on the umbrellas.

Runoff Rejuvenation


 11 x 14, pastel, painted on paper mounted on hardboard.  This scene is along the Laramie River, right on the Wyo/Colorado state line south of Laramie, Wyoming.

Homeward - pastel

18 x 24 pastel on board.  Been what seems like forever since I posted a new painting.  Completed this last winter.  A combination of several reference photos; as I find myself in a mindset of having a painting idea or story I want to tell...then find the necessary references to aid me in telling that story or idea.  Challenging to use multiple references in one painting, but very satisfying when it works because there is never a "perfect", single photo that has everything just exactly right for these larger, more complex paintings.

Pickin' and Choosin'

12 x 24 pastel on board.  I have been wanting to paint a long, vertical
format for quite some time, just for the fun of it.  The white of the calf's head is a bit washed -out for this photo.  It has more warmer color in real life.
