Saturday I started this little guy. It needs a few more passes at it. I’m going to work on my patience and spend more than a day on it. I’m donating this to my daughters school art auction, just as a little silent auction piece. So I wanted to pick a subject that would appeal to the locals, everyone in Boise loves the foothills. It’s such a simple subject and composition, the challenge will be creating space and making it interesting. I’m trying to puzzle out landscapes. It might take 1,000 paintings and 20 years.
