Late Light

What a long road to get to this mountain!
I drove to Wyoming and painted this mountain on a piece of 10x8 canvas, drove it all the way back to Texas and waited for Kathryn Stats to come all the way from Utah to Texas.
Then I drove all the way to San Antonio with my sketch and a 16x12 canvas, and painted with her for a week, still on the long road to this painting.
The work in progress can be seen a couple of posts down; that's how it looked when I left Kathryn. Then, the long road back to Houston, where, at last, this painting was FINISHED. If you want to take a super-zoom look at it, click on the image and then click again. You will see my road up close!
I must say, if you're going to stay at a place for a long while, it should be a great place. It would take me a long time to get tired of these mountains, but I'll always only visit. You can take the girl out of Texas, but not for long!
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wow, Kim, I just love this, and I can see a new influence here. Just noticed that sky! xoxo-Joy

  2. Thanks, Anonymous Joy! That influence, as it came to me, was quite strong. I hope that it retains its strength now as it begins to leave me and go onward!
