High Valley Fields

Brenda and I wheeled out of our little burg Saturday for a long Valentine's weekend in Portland. It was a good change of pace--we were both showing some signs of cabin fever. Two of our kids live there, so it's always fun to see them.

I have some video of the visit, but for some reason the internet connection is horribly slow right now. I'll try to upload it tomorrow.

Wow Don, this one is lovely!

Very simple looking landscape yet there appears to be a ton of details if you look closely.

Looking over your past pieces it seems you like using a lot of blues and browns in your work. I really love that color combination!

It works wonderfully here.

Something about the colors used in this painting really caught my eye. Tranquil, soothing, calming all come to mind.

Really nice job!

I really love this one. What a wonderful sense of huge space and cold. Am drowning in colour theory here in PA (self inflicted lol). This one so inspiring.

Each one of these little things of yours is such a sensitive little vision. I also liked that link of yours in which you show the large mural with Mr. Lincoln in it. That tells me you handle quite a range. Large figure murals are also a passion of mine. I'd like to have had more opportunities in that area, as well. Anyway, keep up the good work. I'll be interested to see your stuff as long as you keep delivering it. If I could I would also buy it. Maybe in the future.

Dean--welcome to my blog and thanks for the encouraging words. I guess that blue/brown color combination does appear quite a lot, mainly because it is so prevalent in the landscape here this time of year.

Good luck with your art, you're doing some nice work.

Manuel, thanks for your words, I appreciate your thoughtful comments. I spent some time on your site and see that you have a lot of range yourself--I'm pleased to get acquainted with your work. I enjoy your writing as well.

Wow, this one is amazing! I love the abstract shapes, and the color palette you used.
