West On Canyon, 20x16"

West On Canyon, 20x16" Pastel on sanded paper. ©2010 Brenda Boylan

Been painting like crazy this past week, producing two pieces with a video to accompany my work. The studio has seen more activity than usual and it's because I have a few pieces to complete for a show coming up in February that I didn't know I was in. How can that be? I blame it on lost/misplaced emails. Like last week's post I value my iMac, but it's a two way street with my computer and me...a love/hate relationship. Or is it operator error? Seems that's the way things have been going with my technology lately. Anyway, here is a piece from a shot I took on the way home this past fall, driving in my car and photographing as I drive...hmmm sounds a bit risky-like behavior. Video to follow.

BEAUTIFUL! Love the abstract qualities balanced by the pure beauty of the scene.
Driving while texting can not compare to the level of "distracted driving" a landscape painter takes part in. Confession, I do the same thing... we need to
have drivers so we can record beauty (camera or note taking) while driving.

Vanessa, Glad you like it. I'll have a video of the painting process next post.

Rahina, Thanks. I figured the sky's quietness would help to ease the busyness of the street below.

Oli, It was easy...oops, am I supposed to say that?

Loriann, Thanks! I've admired your skies in your past posts and wondered while I was painting this just how was I going to put some neutrals in it?
Can't pass up a good scene when you see one, huh?
