a beautiful thing is never perfect….

…or so says some Egyptian proverb…so with that said there are two more in the Series 100. Again I used Wallis paper. It is so great to work with and will continue with it unless I want a strong pre-finished under-color of black Canson or Art Spectrum paper.
The seemingly monochromatic image on the right actually has a touch of blue and lavender in it. Working monochromatically is a good exercise in tonal study.
My son Chris is a great guy…he lives in Montana and keeps an eye out for his Mom in the art market there, as well as delivers and retrieves paintings from shows. He asks can he hang some of these in his office…well yeah, and can one of his associates hang one in her office…why not…market on…Now I can ask…will you check out this quick draw event for me? will you check out this gallery? quid pro quo I guess it is…
Check out Neil Young’s work on Imagekind.com…fabulous graphite work…
happy paintings and happy Monday!

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
