Morning light on the Tetons

A recent trip to Jackson Hole inspired this painting. One morning we got up at 6:00 a.m. with our group taking a bus ride out to see the wildlife that live in the area. We did indeed see plenty of wilderness creatures but what really captured my eye was the sun rising on the Grand Teton mountain range. It was breathtaking and I'm glad I had my camera at the ready to be able to take lots of photos.

There is no greater fun than painting something for my family. I especially love it when my Grandson wants a particular subject. I think he will enjoy this red train to hang on his wall in his bedroom. I may noodle on it a bit more before I give it to him.

Two French Bulldogs

I loved the posture of this women and the similar look on her pet dog. I've heard that some people resemble their canine friends and this is what I wanted to capture with this portrait.
