a little further along...

i thought i'd go ahead and continue to show in-progress photos of this particular piece, just for the hell of it.

it's probably about half-way done. the usualy roller-coaster ride has happened — i've gone from feeling pretty good about it, to not feeling good about it; lather, rinse, repeat. little changes here and there will probably happen - bringing the hot spots of the clouds back to more of a white instead of a yellow-white; more evening-up of the dispersion of the sky colors around the near horizon; more development of the foreground.

although... see that Turner-esque golden glow in the mid right of the earlier version of this (in the previous post below)? that's kind of nice. maybe i'll bring some of that back.

Matt I really like you stuff and I have the same frustrations as you in the QC Art world. Instead of loosing shows in the Qc's I have been stepping up and running a few myself. I am the chairwomen for the LBAL show at the Arts cafe in the figge running through september. I also was asked to take over the Scarecrow row fall festival and art show in Eldridge, iowa in October. If you would like to join i would be honored to have you as part of the show. Just visit or call me Diane at 563-343-2765. Visit my website at or my work at the mid coast rivercenter venue through Ocotber.
