Another forest painting

We have been so intrigued by the light in the Pisgah National Forest in the NC mountains.  Now that I'm back home in the studio I decided to work up another painting from my studies.  Here is one in progress - the soft light at the end of the day... its multimedia with layers of transparent tissue and thick palette knife acrylics.  Its 30" x 40."

Dreamer... work in progress

Finally back in studio with some momentum...  Here's a work in progress.  It's 3 x 5 feet.  I've been experimenting with some fluid bronze paint which provides some very interesting effects.  Still getting the hang of it.  My canvas is in front of the big South window though so my photo is showing a glare off of the metallic paint!  Zowie.  I'll post a better shot later, but wanted to go ahead and share this.  I've also snapped a detail of the paint...

NC mountains again

... it had been our hope to spend the entire dog-days month of August in the North Carolina mountains, but other projects got in the way.  We did manage to stay there for almost a week, and enjoyed the cool misty woods.  Now back home and back into the studio.  I started a couple paintings out there, now hope to finish them up.  Here's a shot of Michael on one of our hikes.
