A Mix of Sun and Clouds

I decided to do a quick landscape – no cows, chickens or other animals in this one. I wanted the focus to be on the dramatic sky and huge puffy clouds. 

Yellow Hills

Yellow Hills 18″ x 24″

I was in Alberta this summer and had some time to appreciate the landscape. From the top of the one of the gentle rolling hills, you can see forever – so different from the view here in Vancouver. In the background you can see the Rochfort Bridge Trestle, one of the longest wooden train trestles in North America.

I don’t seem to have a solid direction with my painting right now, so here is another horse. When I don’t know what I want to do next, it is important that I keep something on the easel. Sitting around waiting for inspiration to strike rarely works. It doesn’t really matter what I’m painting, I just have to keep at it and hopefully some ideas will emerge. Painting a bit of this and a bit of that is my plan for now.

These two little 6″ x 4″ paintings will be my last chickens for a while. Time to move on to something else I think.
