West of Calgary

Brushy Ridge
8 x 10 on panel

OK - It's not in the mountains... but I don't get up there all the time... This was a pond I passed while out taking photos for some writing work I am doing - a nice spot for a quick sketch in paint. Brushy Ridge runs north from Highway One toward Cochrane.

August hike in the Canadian Rockies

Molar Meadows
5 x 7 on panel

My first blog entry!!! I am hoping to use this space to share my plein aire work, and the resulting images from places that are special to me. This 5 x 7 acrylic is from a lovely day up the Icefields Parkway west of Banff - toward South Molar Pass. Lots of late summer flowers - asters, paintbrush, etc. It's a nice memory from a gorgeous day to get this blog rolling!!!
