Christmas Card Painting 2015

Each year I do a painting for my Christmas Card.  This year I had a photograph of a Mule Deer that I took while birding.  This is my painting from the photograph.  Acrylic on canvas, 9 X 12.  I like the large ears and big eyes.  "Miss Mule Deer".

Mt. Moran from Oxbow Bend

I recently returned from a kayaking trip with the Rocky Mountain Sea Kayak Club to the Tetons.
We paddled Jackson Lake, Jenny Lake, String and Leigh Lakes.  But, my favorite was paddling the Snake River.  This is an ink drawing of Mt. Moran from Oxbow Bend.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN.   I took a photo of a painting I did of a skull and a Listerine bottle. (Oil on canvas 9x12), then used my iPhone photo app "Image Blender" to add the scary face into the photo.  Fun!
