Montana Painting In Progress
The canvas for this painting in progress is hanging on the wall, so I'm painting standing up. I used to paint all the time standing up (like the Sundance Kid, I'm better when I move), but my long agonizing knee troubles forced me to paint sitting down for the past couple of years. But now! New knees, and I am very happy that standing up feels great. I'm enjoying painting standing up again, and especially, the ease of painting, standing back from the work, and then painting again.
This is a sunset view from the log cabin where I stayed, looking toward the Gallatin mountains that make up the West side of Paradise Valley. I have a lot of work to do on this, but this is how it's starting out.
