I love Christmas, but it sure does sidetrack my painting schedule! I've been on holiday for the past 5 days, but now I'm back; I painted Midwinter Solstice today. It's 11 x 14 on 300# rough Arches.


The title adds a little're drawn into the painting by the 3 small figures in the distance; two are talking and the other has walked away... This is a watercolor, 16 x 20. I completed this painting 2 days before Christmas.

RIVER BEND RANCH - Watercolor - 8"x10"
Today I spent about 3 hours cleaning up my work area; emptying the trash and sweeping up little bits of debris that is always under my drawing board. I only had a couple of hours before dinner so I decided to do a small landscape. This is the 3rd in a series of "River Bend" paintings.
