Bank on Box Canyon Creek - NFS

7/20/10 "Bank on Box Canyon Creek", 8" x 10", Oil
I was so frustrated with my first two attempts on this painting day, that I decided to do timed paintings--one I posted a couple of days ago.  This is the other one that is a 35 minute painting.  It is amazing to me, as I mentioned before, how limiting the time for a painting both focuses the mind and prevents the second guessing that is the ruin of many a painting.


  1. Another beautiful painting...I love the reflections

  2. I really like the color in this one.

  3. I really like this one, it is loose and fresh.

  4. You work magic in only 35 minutes!! Beautifully done!
