I painted this in September after a wonderful trip to the Jackson Hole area between Wyoming and Idaho. We stayed with friends in Victor, Idaho and this is a view of the large valley ringed by mountains. One day we saw this weather phenomenon, a virga, as my husband informed me. Basically it is when rain forms in the sky but doesn't quite hit the ground. This was a bit or a outlier from the Plains series but it was all so beautiful and memorable I had to paint it. It is 36" x24" and was purchased at the Open Studio in December. I will miss it but it is in a good home with a true art lover. So I guess that means I am back to the studio to get more work done...

Valley in its frame

I really like the way Valley looks in this simple black shadow box frame.

Prairie Sunrise/Sunset


open studio this Saturday

Looking forward to the annual Dry Ice Factory Open Studio Saturday, December 14th from 12-5. Some of the newest pieces are a 6 part, oil on wood panel 12" x12" each Prairie Sunrise/Sunset that can be sold as 2 sets of 3 each for $600 or all 6 for $1200. Valley is a small oil on canvas, 10"x12" in a black shadowbox frame SOLD somehow the wonders of the digital medium make Valley look big and Prairie small. Go figure.
