In the Kewanechee Valley 7x14 Oil
Some folks are just blessed to be born in or live in the right places, for ready made paintings, that is. We spent a week in Colorado recently, visiting the site of a workshop I took six years ago and staying part of the time, and painting, with a classmate and her husband. Around every corner there's a spectacular view. I've got enough photos for months of work. But then it's back to painting Kentucky - fully using one's imagination, trail scouting and lessons in composition which other artists continually illustrate and teach. It's more work, but it's an engaging challenge.
