"Day Before Yesterday"

How fun is it to get back onto a large sheet of LaCarte - this is 30x22" - the only down-side is you literally watch your stick of pastel disappear as you drag it across this huge size! Ah well, that just means I need to make a trip over the mountains to the Dakota Pastel store!
Playing with color, line, layers - I like the rhythm of this piece and the colors are delicious - would make a fabulous conversation piece in your living room, entry, or even in your office!

Once in a Lifetime

My daughter and I were blessed with sightings of over 20 deer this evening  . . . hands empty of camera and telephoto . . .  but I plan to sit silent, fully armed with camera and tripod, tomorrow evening in hopes of capturing what we experienced: a doe with twins; a small herd of doe and fawns followed by two young bucks on a hillside in deep blue shadow; a large herd in another meadow surrounded by aspen tipped in gold, the 4-point nonchalantly grazing atop a hill while three fawn dashed across a lush meadow, into the aspen and back out again, while two young buck locked horns. No - seriously. Once in a lifetime experience!

"Skyline Sentry"

One of the most fun things about being an artist is that you get to "create." This painting was "created" in my imagination. I used photo reference I shot almost 10 years ago of the deer - two separate shots that I "put together" and then "created" the landscape design around them...

"Blue Grade, Dusk"

I just love the shape of deer. They are beautiful and built for bounding over logs in a forest or through a wheat field, and jumping over a barb wire fence from a stand-still. And I love their trust as they pause and look your way . . . and then there are those ears!!!  I have included a B&W so you can easily see the design and values; and there is an enlargement so you can see the strokes and colors.
Be sure to click on each image to see it full size.
