A few changes...

8 x 8" oil/canvas panel

Hi everyone! I'm back from Minnesota and after a few days of playing catching up, I'm finally back to the quiet and comfort, of my studio.  Whew!  I must say that whenever I travel outside Montana, I just can't wait to get back!  It was an adventure though, since we traveled by train and I've got lots of material for future paintings.

Anyway...
This painting had been bugging me, with all those busy shadows, etc.  So I decided to remove all that stuff and get down to some basic shapes and values.  Often times its what you leave out that can make a painting better.

Oh and Happy 4th of July everyone!
