My third annual Sun Shadow Ice & Snow exhibit August 26 and 27 featuring images inspired by the Panhandle Trail was hot and sticky, but fun and successful. Each year I have more art and photos and meet more people who love the trail.
I have four new paintings to share below, and all art featured in the exhibit is listed in the left column. For the next three weeks, until my next regular newsletter on the autumnal equinox, all Panhandle Trail artwork, originals and prints, is 25% off with code PANHANDLE2016 on Portraits of Animals.
Paths I Have Walked
22” x 28”, pastel, $650

It’s another one I’d been wanting to paint, a day in the woods and on the trail with my great-niece Cassidy and great-nephew Kyler from 2011, from the same visit where I got the reference photos for “The Swimming Hole” and the photo “Looking Forward”.

Autumn along the trail is overwhelming with all the colors in the mix of trees and brush in the woods and on the hills. I took this photo years ago because it was so rich in detail, sun and the sun illuminating the leaves on the left, colorful shadows, a road running through it and wanting to walk on. Read more…
