I mentioned in my Chiaroscuro WIP that I had been busy, so I thought some might like to see what I have been doing. Besides taking my catalog piece to be photographed and put on a CD and sent to the museum for their annual show.
The photos that follow, I shot myself in the studio just for my own records. This first one will appear in the catalog. It is 12 x20 and a scene I had done a quick oil sketch on location in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming several years ago. Several being close to 10 year, come to think of it. I also photographed it from my perspective that I was painting from. I would have liked to done a major piece with this material, but the market at some of these show, like the one this will be in is really down. Anything $5000 or more, in a show like this, has a very small chance of selling, so I will keep the 5 pieces I am sending under $4000. The largest piece I will send is not finished yet, but close and it is a 18x18 landscape. Pay no attention to my titles. I'm a painter not a writer.
So this is "Days End- Wind River Mountains" 12x20 oil on panel. The catalog piece.
#2 "Frosty Morning" 11x14 Oil on linen panel
#3 "Mountain Magenta" 8x12 Oil on panel
OK This last one is not quite finished in this photo I was just looking at it with this frame on it to see if it would work. The painting is finished now, there were only a few highlights and shadows to adjust, but I needed th pic to send to a friend for their opinion on the frame. I kept bouncing back and forth between this one and a gold leaf one. We are going with this one I think.
"Teton Dawn" 16x12 Oil on panel
One more to finish and the show is finished. The show is at the end of July in Cheyenne, Wyoming and held at the Old West Museum.
