"FISH WRAP"

This isn't really ready but I'm working the gallery today and we've been splitting wood for winter heat - I just don't have much new but I feel it coming. This young man is my brother who is now a world class fisherman but when this photo was taken he or my mom wrapped the tail of the Sunny in a pink kleenex. I will try this again still thinking about this sweet image. Thanks for following. I promise to get my act together.
ALSO I UPDATED "CARNIVAL" WITH BETTER PHOTO AND DETAIL SHOTS

"CARNIVAL"




I wanted to give you some idea of size - so I taped a 6"x6" next to the 18" X 36" painting I've been working on these last couple of days. I couldn't take it outside to get a good photo (it's raining) but I think you get the idea.
I needed to tackle something a little larger. Working small is great - it's fantastic -  but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to paint something a bit larger so it was time to give it a go.
I don't know if I'm unstuck but this is a start. I got stuck over a sunflower - you know me and flowers it's not a good combination.
Thanks for following and sorry for the lack of new work!

"BUCKETS OF TOMATOES II"

I've been working on a larger piece so I don't have much new. Here's my other bucket of tomatoes. I wanted to try it again with a different technique. I've been struggling for awhile - comparing myself to other painters - well that's not getting me anywhere other than frustrated.  I just have to let it all go and be me and paint for the love of painting!  Thanks for following!

"THANK YOU DIANA"




           
Diana painting in Stehley Park
Diana's dog painting



Diana is a friend, painting partner, and enthusiastic art supporter. She called the Steamboat Pilot and Today paper to see if they would do an article about my Humane Society Pet Project. Diana is the retired President of the Routt County Humane Society. Anyway, Luke(the writer) and John(the photographer) showed up last night while I was hanging my show. They produced a great article on my behalf  - the link to the article
