Harmony Bowl in Summer 12x24"
Yesterday I finished the mountain scene that I started on Monday. Harmony Bowl is on Whistler Mountain and is a gorgeous place to go hiking in the summer, especially when the meadows are in bloom! Blackcomb Mountain is in the distance. I know, it's not blazing hot in terms of colours but I did warm it up a bit with a yellow glaze (which really doesn't show up well in this photo). However it is still on the cool side. Next time: a red sky (or something like that)!
I'm working on a dog commission today: A german sheperd. I haven't had any requests (until now) for sheperd paintings, although I did two sheperd-cross paintings of my brother's dogs for him for Christmas. They are getting quite old now (15 and 16!) and I thought it would make a nice gift for him and his girlfriend. This painting is for the person who won the bid for a custom pet portrait donation I did for the Canadian Athlete's Now (CAN) telethon auction on SHAW TV last summer ... (My cousin's have been involved in synchronized swimming for years). I'll post it when I'm done, probably next week as I'm going away this weekend.
