Metolius 2 and Others

                                                          oil on canvas 36x18"

My studio is a disaster area as I try to make it presentable for my guests next weekend while still trying to paint. And of course, as a perverse human being, I`m being flooded with new ideas I`m dying to work on. This is the opposite of having ample time but the well being dry which is also common. Somebody please slap me.
Below are some paintings that had 'issues' that the deadline compelled me to resolve. See them in person during the Portland Open Studio Tour next weekend and the following.

I like all of these but that Wyoming piece really calls to me. Such a nice interaction of shapes.

Hoping this weekend that everything went well for you. Why is it that painting events make us crazy? I find that I can't get anything done or focus for about a week prior to the event. You would think I might get the hang of it at some point:)

Those are all gorgeous - I'm drooling here. I find working on a prepared gesso panel reminds me of working on yupo....very different than canvas. Wishing you many sales at O. Studios!
