water mixable oil 5 x 7 inches
This one took two days. Yesterday I felt like I was coming down with a cold and didn't feel like doing much of anything. I did get this started and today felt fine and finished it. I probably could have fiddled around with it for another hour. It is a spruce growing on the bank of a creek. I took the photo sometime in the 90's at the same time I painted the watercolor below.

It was one of my favorite paintings around that time. I can still remember sitting there painting in late summer listening to sandhill cranes.

This one I started over a week ago from my car at my neighbor's. I'd been hoping to finish it on site with my easel, but its still too cold. I went over today and took a photo.
