Finishing up ... Autumn Path

Autumn Path...almost done
Autumn Path...just beginning
Well, it's been awhile hasn't it?  Sorry about that.  My paycheck job at The Lodge at Deadwood has been keeping me hopping.  Way too tired to paint by the time I get home. 

This particular piece has been completed,  but my last shot of it really sucked.  So, my significant other (from now on known as S.O.), Jack ran to his office in Deadwood and got his camera.  He just got home and will try to take a shot of the finished piece with what light is left in the day. I'll post that shot when he's done.

This past mid October, we went for a walk with our black pug, Frank, along the Mickelson Trail in Deadwood.  I deliberately left the shot unfocused and wanted to paint a softer, looser landscape. 

Currently some of my work is on display and for sale at the Spearfish Arts Center in Spearfish, SD.  I'm enjoying meeting new people and getting to know the Black Hills arts community.

Have a great holiday season everyone!
