Lewis and Clarke Trail.  The painting itself is now finished but it needs to be backed which will add to the strength and brilliance of the colors.  This is a Chinese Brush Painting done on Shuan rice paper treated with alum.  I've done a number of undersea, coral reef paintings with this paper, but never a landscape.  I did this one just to see how it would work and I do think it succeeded very well.  Will be doing more of these!

Glacier Park Show-Off

My latest painting, an acrylic, featured this golden mantle ground squirrel, a resident of Glacier National Park, Montana.  He's small--an 11 X 14 and I think, captures the little guy pretty well.  He was a great photogenic subject, definitely not afraid of people and put on quite a show for me and the other hikers just below Logan Pass in the park.
