Painting in progress
I took a bunch of snapshots of rowboats at a dock at Pinnacle State Park, in Utah (on US Route 89) this past summer and am only now starting to work with them. I love to paint reflections, any kind of reflections. In fact, I remember trying to capture the edges of a dock and water reflections in a painting when I lived in Santa Barbara and was taking my first studio art classes. Painting something like this turned out to be way beyond what I was capable of at the time (okay, it was 30+ years ago). Way more than 10,000 hours of practice later, I'm still finding the process challenging!

The two paintings, waiting for me to get back to work, as soon as I've posted this blog!
