Gracy's Place

Gracy's Place, 20 x 24

I painted this today from one of many photos I took while in southwestern Colorado a few weeks ago. I haven't painted this large in awhile, so I was happy to be able to complete it in one session, albeit one that lasted several hours. As you might guess, that's Gracy in the foreground. My dog, Major, is in on up the road, waiting on his friend.

This is fabulous! Everything about it works! I really like the strong light and intense shadows and the way they fall across the road. The subject matter is intriguing as well. These two dogs lead you right into the painting. I feel as though I am walking along behind them. Great work.

A very strong painting Stephen, I love the way you use values, it's a style identifiable to you and you alone. A great blog, I will now visit often.
