WIP.. Not sure about this one..

I am feeling a little frustrated with this Bighorn Sheep. It's just not turning out the way I had originally envisioned it. But I'm going to finish it up and hope that by the end, I will like it somewhat! :)

Leslie Gulch

Leslie Gulch, Owyhee Reservoir
11 x 14

So this is the Owyhee Reservoir in Oregon. It sits just outside of the Idaho border. This lake brings back memories of long fishing days with my family, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and an ice cold coke! We had so much fun. And if you want to catch tons of fish when you go out, this is the place!

I had so much fun with this painting. I love using color and playing with new ideas. This is the first painting I have done with water like this, and I think I will continue to improve on it as I do more like this. I love the towers I had to work with here. These giant rock formations are breathtaking and the colors are stunning!

Sneak Peek!

I decided to put up a sneak peek of what I started yesterday.. It's different than any of my other work, but interesting and I LOVE IT! :) It's been fun playing around with a different idea, and I'm definitely going to venture into this more often. I will post the whole painting this afternoon! Stay tuned...

Another Painting of our beautiful Boise River!

Passing Through
11 x 14

The North Channel of the Boise River is making it's way through Star, Idaho in this painting. This is one of the many things I love about where I live.. It's such a nice feature to have a river passing through the whole valley. So whether you're out in the country, or downtown Boise, you have immediate access to this gorgeous river.. It is the perfect place for family pictures, a summer evening swim, and it makes for the perfect setting to paint!

I am finally finished with this river landscape. I'm so glad to have it done so I can move on to something a little more fun! :)

Update on Laser!!

I'm getting closer to finishing Laser.. I am thinking of changing up the whole background and forground.. Something more full of color and interest.. What do you think? I would love any sugguestions and opinions on how to make this paint get that wow factor! :)
