BY THE WAY.....drum roll! Two NEW "pieces" are making our puzzle complete and we will introduce them soon. Such talent as you cannot imagine, these two ladies fill in gaps amongst us and promise to nudge us all in new directions and challenges. Both are headed up to the mountains with us for their grand initiation (which involves whatever we can think of to tease them) and upon return we will do the great reveal of their work and credentials. Stay tuned for some new work and lots of stimulation.

While painting a mountain scene several weeks ago, I was trying to capture the stark difference between the lights and darks I was seeing. I could not seem to get that feeling from the colors that were on the canvas. Out of sheer frustration I scraped the whole painting and strangely liked what was left. I started building on that using a palette knife instead of a brush to push some of the paint around. I really liked the feeling I was getting from doing this and ended up with this moody mountain scene
