Mt. Garfield Painting
The painting above is the only other work I got done in the studio this week. It is "Evening Clouds Over Mt. Garfield;" 8x10" oil on canvas. It is of the eastern end of our valley. The clouds are pretty wild, but actually 'tamer' than they were in reality. There was a sundog in the sky (a partial rainbow), which I left out, because I figured it wouldn't look real. I think paintings with rainbows and such have a hard time not looking cheesy. As it is, it may be somewhat over the top, but we do have very dramatic skies here.
Otherwise, I have been digging a path in my garden, to be filled in with brick pavers, and to ultimately try to contain my strawberries, which want to take over the world.
