Petroglyphs in Wyoming

This is another commission that I finished this week and mailed off yesterday. The work is a 14″ x 19″ watercolor on 140 lb Cold Press Paper. The imagery is from a shot of petroglyphs in Wyoming (one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.). It took a practice painting and some studies to figure out how to complete this one. Eventually I learned that it would take masking fluid and many layers to achieve what I wanted. I really like the way that it turned out and thought I would share! It was fun to work on and now I think I will tackle some compositions from our trip to Portland. 😉

For fun, here is a beautiful shot that my Mom took during one of our visits to Jackson Hole and Dubois, Wyoming….several years ago. I am standing in a field of grass at the Yellowstone National Park.

Farm Animals

Last weekend, we visited my family’s farm in Leroy, AL. Leroy is about an hour north of Mobile, AL and my Mom keeps “a few” animals there. I thought that I would introduce some of them.

Shenandoah National Park

We were late getting up this morning but it was such a gorgeous day today that we had to go and check out the forest at the Shenandoah National Park, VA. We spent a little time on the Appalachian Trail before we had to head back. The air was crisp and cool and the leaves of the forest were absolutely breathtaking.
