I decided to spend the month of July working on some landscape paintings in oil. I was inspired by a recent plein air workshop with Brad Holt. Some of the paintings turned out pretty good, so this fall you might see a few on exhibit at the art shows and at my galleries. Here's a sneak peek at some oils in progress in the studio.

I've been working on a few new paintings of Zion National Park to replace the ones I've sold this month at Lafave Gallery in Springdale. If you get a chance this summer, stop by and see Kathy Lafave at the gallery. Her beautiful gallery is located at the entrance to Zion National Park.

I have to admit, half the fun of having a vintage truck and a six-pac camper is just plain camping! Always ready to roll, the camper also enjoys aquatic research once in a while. Nellie joined me for an evening at Sand Hollow Reservoir. :)
