I broke a few out of the box from our southern Utah trip.
The first one here is of Rabbit Brush, that one day it was raining and overcast I had started a piece only to give up when the sun finally came out - the light had changed so much it wasn't worth working on the same piece. So I started this small 9x12 of the flowers against some lava rocks.
The next one I did as a sunset painting with Bryce Liston, so we had about an hour to get as much done as possible - which for me meant leaving the entire foreground blank. Today I finished it off from the image I had.
