Update

It’s been awhile since I wrote any updates. But as you have seen, if you have connected to my gordonthebison Facebook page, I have been working on the children’s book “Gordon.” It is a story about a baby bison. It has gone off to the publisher to be printed.
In the meantime I have still been painting. The Karan Ruhlen Gallery in Santa Fe (https://www.facebook.com/karanruhlen?fref=pb&hc_location=profile_browser) just told me yesterday that they sold two large pieces. One is the painting that is at the top of my Facebook page. (30″ X 60″) It is the large horizontal lavender field. The other is this large sunflower painting. (36″ X 36″)

Well, it’s been a long time since I last posted my progress on the painting I have been working on. Why is it so hard to find the time to get to my easel? So many things seem to get in the way of my painting. Tax time doesn’t help! Anyhow, I finished this painting last week and have been having a little difficulty getting a good image of it. So here is the final photo of this painting. I can now get on to the next painting. The new canvas is already on my easel.

I was at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico when I saw this scene. I had to paint it. Anyhow, I thought it might be fun to have you join me in the process of bringing this painting to life. I will post my process and progress over the next week or so as I go through the stages to complete this painting. I hope you enjoy following it to completion.
