With it being just too insanely cold out to go paint, I have been hanging the studio reading and going through photos. I guess no time is better than the present to start making more work from my 2012 trip to Wyoming. I have been hesitant because I've not been too happy with the photos I had. But, thanks to all of the plein air work I have been doing, it's given me the confidence to work from the photo, but to only use it for composition and ideas.
Like the photo I used here, it's pretty boring, but I liked the composition.
The worst thing to make is a boring painting, and I've made several. So, on this one, I made up a sky I thought would make a much more interesting painting.
If you are interested in purchasing this painting or any others, please contact me.
