LONG DAY AT THE MARKET

Another of my sisters Series. Interestingly, when I recently brought some of my newer pieces into one of the Galleries I'm in, the owner was surprised, and pleased, that some of these newer pieces were on white backgrounds. She had recently been in a Gallery back East and saw some work done on a white background and she said she thought to herself " Why doesn't anyone work on a white background anymore?" Voila!! There I was! :)
We went camping this past weekend on the St. Joe River here in Idaho. Overall we had beautiful weather ... a little warm (95ish) and the skies were a little smokey from the fires :( in the area, but we had a spot right on the river so why would I complain?! :) I did get some great reference photos for future paintings too. :) (And for my Artist friends, please feel free to also use them)
This is evening over Black Lake as we headed for the St. Joe. Smokey, but beautiful nonetheless.
Another scene from Black Lake
This is the old guy in our family. Well ... in dog years, he's the same age as I am so I guess, really, he's just a Spring Chicken! :)
I followed this fellow down the River for a while until he could get into places I couldn't! My presence didn't seem to faze him one bit.
Some flowers from the old Train Depot in Avery, Idaho. They also have a very nice Fly Fishing tackle shop there that serves the best Ice Cream! :)
I think the photos over Black Lake can serve as cloud photos for today. :)
