Sorry for the delayed post guys, the internet was giving me a lot of grief tonight. That gave me time to decide that I'm going to post the last 3 one at a time though :-) ... can you tell I don't want it to end either?

This one was done at a new painting location I discovered right near the end of the project, and one I'm sure I'll go back to often. I feel like this one has a more graphic feel than a lot of the work done, more like how I used to paint, which I thought was a pretty cool thing to pop out right near the end of the project. Plein air painting - just like a box of chocolates...


  1. I like the graphic feel! It reinforces the ruggedness of the mountains.

  2. A beautiful pieces. Love the composition, brushwork and color

  3. Lovely and almost at 100! Bravo. Spectacular work.

  4. Liz, This painting feels different than the rest. The mountain feels as if it is right there. The clouds are wonderful.

  5. I love it! The warmth of the near shoulder and the boldness of the top, and of course, those beautiful clouds. That bit of bright at the bottom is great too. It does look more like your larger paintings on your website. Very interesting.

  6. Hey glad you guys like this one! It was fun to approach the subject in a bolder style.

  7. I love it too! I really like the bold approach. Your paintings and sharing all your experiences and what you have learned has been such a gift. Thank you!

  8. Great brushwork - very brave and decisive paint application which is most appealing!

    I have been painting most every day but behind on posting anything as we don't have internet where I am staying - hopefully next week I can schedule some posts!

    Looking forward to meeting you soon and seeing some of those imposing mountains again myself!

    All the best,
