Beautiful day to paint. Temp was a little chilly but standing in the sun made it a gorgeous day.

Large Landscape from small

 Platte River 52x60 oil
This piece was painted from the little 6x8. Just wanted to see if I could do it. Now what do I do with it. It barely fits in the studio to dry. Guess I'll lean it back up against the wall from where it came.
 Bear Creek Field 11x14 oil plein air 
Painted with the PAAC today at the Bear Creek Green Belt. I have painted there for a long time but it is starting to look better to me now. My point of view must be changing.
Snow Field 6x8 oil 
Another small piece for the daily painters of CO, otherwise known as CFAI.co
I have 10 little paintings now so I think I will smush them all together to get them on 1 page.

Annual New Years Day Paint out

 Chatfield Stream Winter 11x14 oil
Chatfield S.P. 11x14 oil
Cold Horizon 6x8 oil Daily Painters

What a great day to paint and to start the new year. It started out pretty cold and cloudy but the sun soon came out and it turned into a day that was hard to go home. Standing on the stream edge and listening to the water rustling and the geese fluttering over head and the sun on your face, wow, what a great day.
