1/4 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

With the plant sale this week, visitors on campus, night meetings and deadlines and mere minutes to think about painting, I'm reaching into my archives for those paintings I haven't yet posted.

This painting was done last November or December following the workshop I took with Karlyn Holman. I used different colors but similar methods - lots of water, painting, unryu paper - to create a mountain view with a sunrise and green/blue hills in the foreground.

I'll be scant on the computer this week and hope to catch up as I can during breaks. Our sale is Saturday with stormy weather predicted, so we've lots of contingency planning to do as well as sundance praying...

Have a great day!

Oh this one just SINGS!! You know how I love this style and I'm so glad to see you post this as I know how hard you worked on getting this technique down pat. This one should be framed and have a prominent position in your house -- and/or go into a show for sure. Love the colors, the abstract quality and the unusual effects.
Big hugs,
