6X6 inch Original Oil Painting
This is my final plein air painting of the year, painted on December 31, 2007. My wife and I were shopping at Foothills Ranch and the spectacular scenery inspired me to grab my mini paintbox from the car to create one final painting of the year.
While I painted this from the edge of the parking lot my wife was able to enjoy a bit of shopping time alone. This was a bonus for her because I’m a typical “male” shopper. I go in, get what I want, and check out. My wife is more of a “recreational” shopper and likes spending a bit more time in stores than I do. (Men are from Mars, etc.) This way everybody was happy.
Here is a photo of the actual scene for comparison, and a picture of the mini paintbox I used. My Midwest friends may find it hard to believe but this photo was actually taken as I painted outdoors on December 31, with temperatures in the 70s. I love the weather, the sunshine and the stunning scenery where I live. Hope you can see that in this painting.
