More Big Rocks

This weekend I came across another photo from our recent trip to Borrego Springs and I had to paint it. This was pretty far back in Palm Canyon where just a small shaft of light was sneaking in.

Au Sable River Shoreline

While I have a break at work, I'm trying to do at least one painting a day. This is today's from a photo I took in Michigan a couple of summers ago. We're going back again this year so I'm trying to tune up a bit before we go...

I've never done a nocturne before so I thought I'd give it a try. I think I'm hooked..

This one was done in pastels using a new Great American set that I just got.

Bishop Creek Canyon

Came across some photos from a fishing trip I took to Bishop Creek canyon in the Eastern Sierra and I couldn't resist painting this view across one of the little lakes....
