Mountain Ridge, Whistler, 30x30, acrylic

I gave this one a hard look because I was taking it to the  Rendezvous gallery last week. I decided it needed a bit of a rework. I posted it before but I felt that I needed to redesign the area around the central trees. I took some of them out and tried to open it up a bit so that the eye could move around more easily. There is always so much to consider in creating a painting. I must take the time to lay a good foundation and do those value sketches, I am always in such a hurry to start a new piece and then I end up going back to fix things. Wouldn't it be nice if each piece just flowed off the brush with no need for revisions.


  1. Wow, what wonderful work you do! I randomly found your blog following Kim's. Love the subject matter and how you interpet the images. I'm a sucker for your trees.

  2. Well said Ray! I was just going to say that I love your trees! Also randomly found you. I love all I have seen. Your style is fabulous!

  3. Great looking painting. I like the trees but also love the shadows on the snow and mountains. Have missed your postings.


Please leave a comment I appreciate the feedback.
