my favorite part of this one is the shadows. someone once told me that no painting is ever really done, you just chose an interesting place to stop. i chose this place, which is a little different than what i would normally chose.

travis from tanner frames was nice enough to let mark and i have a show in his space this last month for gallery stroll. the best part was there was a trevor southey show that they had more pieces than wall space in the other galleries. so, me, mark, and trevor southey had a mini show together. the image isn't great, but one day real soon (when i actually finish all these paintings) i'll post the actual images of the work.
southey is the left hand wall, marks are the mountain and house on the back left wall, mine are next, the 3 stacked over to the large bocce. then marks are the little ones on the right. it turned out to be a pretty ok show.

spring city plein air competition
plein air provo, terra nova gallery - which was maybe the colded plein air i've ever done.
i ended up sitting in the back of my car trying to finish up as much as possible because my
fingers were frozen. this painting was made from 9am - 1pm including the frame. what a morning.

i found this lady at the springville museum of art quilt show. her family enter a quilt she had made. they had these photos and a short bio about her hanging next to her quilt (which was beautiful). i loved everything about it so i snuck the bio/photos from the wall and made a copy, then stuck it right back. eventually i made these drawings.
