ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER FLOWER


Today, my live model became greatly fatigued at the amount of time it was taking me to figure out how to paint her with the knife. Luckily, she doesn't charge a sitting fee, and after a cool beverage, she perked right back up.
Will try again tomorrow..............

This is an early morning view of Sundial Peak in the Big Cottonwood Canyon of the Wasatch Mountain Range in Utah. Lake Blanche sits beneath this prominent peak, adding even more beauty to an already spectacular scene.

CASUALTY OF THE KNIFE


This afternoon, I suffered the loss of a good friend, one of my favorite knives. He was a good knife, a hard worker, rarely complained, although he did "bite" my fingers a couple of times. He gave me many years of joy and accomplishment.
He will be missed.
Aloha~

NIHOA


This is my new largest painting to date.
I purposely picked this canvas in preparation for a concerning week ahead. It's considerable size would take much of my time and keep my mind occupied on something other than worrying.

Some close up detail of this painting.





Small glass particles in the surf spray and sections of the water give it a bit of sparkle in certain light.
