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...
