"Hoof Dust"

"Hoof Dust" 9x12 oil
I pushed my boundaries on this piece... in both color and subject. I wanted the painting to be simple and dramatic, so I kept most of the brushwork big and impressionistic. More about the relationships between warm dusty hues and the cool blues and violets in the shadows, the horse ended up being the perfect vehicle for this exploration.
I learned a lot on this one. It's on days like today I feel like I'm finally learning to paint :)

"High Country Nomads"

"High Country Nomads" 30x46 oil
This is the biggest painting I've done in quite a while! Glad to finally wrap this one up and move on to the next project. Feeling pretty good about this piece.
