I painted this landscape from a photo I took in winter while at Arches National Park. While painting I was constantly going back to the desert in my mind, feeling the light breezes and listening to the dead silence. Definitely one of my favorite places.

I've finished the portrait of Darrel and Joyce. I guess I'm pretty happy with it. Darrel's shirt was a little challenging. If you remember the photo, he is wearing a multi colored striped shirt. I really didn't feel like painting all those stripes, so I simplified. The challenge was in seeing the shading through all of that color.

Here is the progress I've made on Darrel and Joyce in the last two evenings. It's not quite as exciting as when their faces emerged, but still fun to see. The third picture is from our Wed. night class.
