A Cut Above - SOLD

12x9 inches
oil on panel

I find the Coyote Syncline incredibly challenging to paint.  It's amazing to look at in person, but it's difficult to translate to canvas its immensity.  Especially plein air, since I paint pretty small outdoors.  I feel this one is successful-- I was going for that early morning freshness.  I hope you like it, too.

This is hanging at the Columbia Art Gallery in Hood River, OR, as part of the 2011 NW Plein Air Show, during the month of September.

Wow.  I have discovered Carlson.  Amazing that such a boring, difficult book could be so enthralling four years later.  Who knew?  Thanks to my first plein-air workshop instructor for insisting that all his students purchase this staple of landscape painting.  He'll never see this, but thank you, John Budicin.
