Cottonwood Country Colorado landscape oil painting

Cottonwood Country
8 x 10 oil painting
Colorado plein air style oil painting, near Cortez

This painting came out of my 2015 summer trip to Colorado. We passed through many beautiful meadow and farming areas, and were pleased to see how green and healthy the trees were, with adequate water – as compared to California with its persistent drought. I used some palette knife work and a rougher than usual canvas to capture a bit of the feeling of the blowing leaves. I think it works pretty well.

    The palette knife and rougher canvas really help create that look of a ruffling wind, Karen– love it.

    When the accusation is false, Romney can certainly verify that false. All of they have to do is let go his / her income taxes. Possibly Romney is concealing some thing, or even he or she feels obduracy, pigheadedness is often a considerably more presidential trait as compared to visibility in addition to honesty. In either case, she has incorrect.
