Sacramento Basin Commission

These are photos for a recently completed commission for Venoco Oil in Denver. After opening a floor for their Sacramento Basin group I was brought in to create a painting representing that region.
I wanted to show the landscape and how, after you look you begin to see. I had this vision to create a piece that almost becomes sculptural. To achieve the desired effect I mounted canvas to a plywood panel that had been affixed to stretchers. The small panels were then attached to the large panel and stand proud about one-inch.
The client was very happy with the end result.

Late summer Eleven-mile Canyon, CO

My son and I took a late-summer camping and fishing trip to Eleven-mile Canyon in south-central Colorado. I am amazed at what an excellent fisherman he has become, he is still quite young and he is already a much better fly-fisherman than I.
This painting is from a photo I took of several people fishing that weekend.
