I will have show later in the year and the woman organizing the show has requested 5-8 large paintings....whew! So I am painting away...this is a 30x40 and expect to do a few of these. Actually, I have no complaints...painting the high desert is what I love, and a large format allows me to really explore the horizons and sky.
This scene is about 30-40 miles east of Bend, Oregon. The area is called Glass Mountain...I am not sure why, but probably because of a huge obsidian deposit just off the road. It is a fascinating place as there are flakes from arrowheads everywhere.
