Teton Valley Changes

Teton Valley Changes 5x5 oil on linen panel
Hi Friends!  Well, here is one small study I did when I was on my recent trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming.  Did I tell you how beautiful it was there?  I think so....:)  I have been traveling a lot lately-Jackson Hole, then last weekend I was at the annual AWA show in Atlanta.  What great paintings and wonderful time.  Our show was at the Huff Harrington Fine Art Gallery.  Thank you Huff Harrington!  Next year we will be in Tucson at the Sonoran Desert Museum!  Sunday, I will be leaving for Louisiana, my last trip for the year.  I have been to Louisiana the past 4 years.  The bayou is a beautiful place to paint and the subject matter very different.  But in time, I'll be posting some of the work from that trip as well.  Today I worked on a couple of the studies I did in Wyoming and will be posting those soon also.  I will also be getting back to my 50/50 project to complete the last 10 paintings for that so please stay tuned.  As always, thanks for allowing me into your digital life!

This painting will eventually be for sale...

The Grand Tetons-some of my photos

Hi There Friends,
I am back from Jackson Hole Wyoming.  What a wonderful trip it was!  Needless to say the trip came to an end too soon.  There are so many paintings to be painted and such beauty there!  I hope you can visit the Grand Teton National Park at some time if you have never been able to.  This was my first visit but I hope to go back.  We are so blessed to live in a country that has such preserved beautiful land and scenery.  While traveling to Europe is exciting and wonderful, the good old USA has so much to offer.    I will be posting some of my plein air paintings completed there in the coming days and weeks.  I'll also be finishing my 50/50 project, with 10 paintings approximately to go.  Thanks as always for allowing me to share my work via this blog with you!

The Grand Tetons

Such beautiful skies~ the aspens were turning gold...

One of our last days there...I was able to capture this beautiful rainbow.  
Of course these photos do not do justice to the sights we saw!
