this will be the last in the series: n. crestone creek.
once this one is complete, i'll begin the process of cataloging, labeling and rolling the canvases to be shipped to houston.
i really struggled with this one. perhaps i don't want to let go of painting even for a short time. i'll resume tomorrow.
make that 3 days later. while preparing the paintings for shipping next week i was motivated to work a bit more on ciyu creek. i'll see if i can find the time and inspiration to take it further.
11/24: today, a grey and cold day, while tweaking the canvases, labeling them & preparing for shipping, i was moved to work further on ciyu creek. i'm pleased with the result & will include with the rest of the paintings being shipped to houston. I feel it's a riff on my final 11/11 final pleine air painting of the season and a nod of the head to my paleolithic buddies.
11/25: after receiving 21" of fresh snow last night, i precariously made it over to my studio, continued packing preparations and, yes, dove back into ciyu.
