Painting progress...

Heres one of the larger paintings I'm working on for entry in the upcoming C.M. Russell Western Art Auction.  Its a take on "A Soft Place to Land", a painting I did this past April.  This one will be a bit less stylistic then that last one, a bit truer to my style and much LARGER.  30 x 36" Well, bigger than what I've been doing for a while now.  Its so nice to get back to these larger supports.  I love to stand while I'm painting, and also just the physical act of being able to step back to see how its progressing helps me stay alert and focused.   I hope to finish it here in the next few days.  Below is the start which took about an hour to draw and lay in the basic color values.
