oil on canvas panel

Had the pleasure of staying in this fantastic mountain cabin in Pagosa Springs, CO this Fall. And yes, that is a bear in the front yard...a bear sculpture.
The painting is now hanging in the homeowner's office.

See this gentleman almost every time I go to the grocery store. He and his worldly possessions in his grocery cart take up residence on a bus stop bench just across the street from where I shop. Stopped one day to ask if he minded if I took his photo explaining that I was a painter and would be interested in painting him. He was so accommodating and couldn't wait to talk about art with me.
Hoping this will be juried into the national OPA show here this coming spring.

"Sunset Campsite"

22 x 30
oil on stretched canvas

Not sure how I let so many months pass before I post new paintings on this blog. Certainly not that I haven't been painting! Miss it and especially keeping up with blog friends and seeing their new artwork. Okay, like everyone else, here's to new years resolutions to improve on posts!

This painting was inspired by a group of tepees just south of Santa Fe, NM. The western sunsets add even more awe to an already magnificent landscape. 
Thanks for checking in!
