Well, busy putting away Christmas decorations but in between played catchup with my 20 minute paintings.
The first one is from a photo that I took at the OR coast obviously at sunset since we get fantastic ones here and not sunrises over the water.
The next one was also from one of my photos this one from a trip we took last May through Utah, many National Parks, Arizona and California and back home. This particular photo was taken in an Escalante Slot Canyon. For those of you that don't know, that is sheer walls of rock in this case that special Sedona red, and there is a passageway through the walls and then it opens up into a larger area and then ends. If one looks up you can see the sky. Well folks apparently get married here and this was like a tiny offering altar where as we found it there were two sticks side-by-side sort of the couples' offering to whatever they believed in. Fascinating and very beautiful.
My reds didn't quite make it but you get the idea.
Plan to start on another painting sometime this afternoon hopefully. It will cheer me up after having to put away the Christmas decorations.
