Elk Creek Alley - NFS

"Elk Creek Alley", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This is another painting from a few years ago, one that painted itself--a sketch really. Of all the paintings I've done over the years, it is one of my favorites.



  1. I see why you like it so much. It is a beauty. You really captured the distance and kept it fresh. Than again, I could say that about all of your paintings.

  2. Beautiful story told with gorgeous color, and sparse brushwork. So great when that happens. Best to you in this new year!!

  3. I can see why this is one of your favorites. It's wonderful. Beautiful color!

  4. Beautiful painting and i like this designs.

    Hey Cathy Engberg, Thanks for your kind words. Means a lot:)
