Canyon Wildflowers

"Canyon Wildflowers"
Day 3 of 30/30
8"x6" oil on canvas panel

Some paintings flow off the brush nicely and easily.  This one did NOT.  Originally I had a large rock or boulder that sat among these flowers but the rock grew larger and larger and eventually took over the painting!  So I wiped it out and planted more wildflowers!

The photo inspiration for Day 3 came from a beautiful hike Steve and I took several years ago in the Tetons.  I loved the value contrast between the tree mass and the flowers growing in the foreground.  

I hope you come back for Day 4!
