Lone Fisherman in Canoe

Oil on Canvas, 20 x 16, Lone Fisherman in Canoe, ... started out as a monotone, added a lot of gold that is not showing up in photo's ... oval transparent glaze color complementary of mountains' colors added ... that should do it. Do what? I dunno, just "it."

Touch up is the name of the game now. I think I am getting into a systematic banging out paintings. We shall see: but I doubt it... Painting a day? ... and I am 256 behind.

After the Hurricane -- Gulf of Mexico

First Day Layout, oil on linen, 18 x 18, After the Hurricane -- Gulf of Mexico

UPDATE :: Painting a Day :: "Wranglers on the Purple Sage"

UPDATE 08.30.2010 :: Better snap shot of the piece, 20 x 24, oil on linen, Wranglers of the Purple Sage
Camera phone photo balances the colors strange ... this has more mood indigo than it shows here.

Oil on linen, More Wranglers, this time out early on the sage, roping a pony for the day's work.

by South Texas Correspondent Dave Darnell

Canadas on the Colorado. "They were in a gaggle across river and swam across to let me snap them. Looks like a goose, gander and fledgling."
