Happy Trails

Running on the Centennial Trail has been such a blessing in many ways. Here are my latest two paintings from mile markers 11 - 13.

The leaf painting was technically quite difficult so I am very proud of it.

I had painted a little bird study that Norm liked a lot. I decided to paint a particularly pretty weed/flower around it. The buds of these little flowers are quite lovely.

Right now I'm beginning a new trail painting of my favorite flower/weed that has been difficult to photograph. We'll see if it is difficult to paint.

Who knew that a trail full of weeds would be so inspiring?


  1. Wow - Did you make adjustments to the leaf or is it the camera? That leaf just POPS out of the painting. Looks really good.

  2. I added more shading and contouring after talking to you. It DOES pop! Thanks for your input (and your patience).

  3. Absolutely beautiful, my friend. I just wish I could be there to see them in person.
