An Approaching Storm



















An Approaching Storm
Oil on linen panel,  6x8" 2016

This landscape painting study is a view of an approaching storm on the flats of New Mexico. I have been thinking about doing more landscape paintings and recently found a large body of images I had from the late 70's of trips out West. The first gallery I showed with was Trailsides Gallery in Jackson Hole, WY. many, many years ago. We are thinking about taking a painting trip to NM this Spring and Fall.
Can't wait to do some plein air out West.
