4 Paws East – 4″ x 4″ Acrylic on Black Gessoed Aquaboard
If you lived in my head, this is the view you could see when you looked due east from the beautiful little cabin (4 Paws) I stayed in, outside of Driggs, Idaho last week. This cabin was the most amazing place. It went waaaay beyond my wildest expectations. Next time I go, I’ll try to extend my stay at 4 Paws. It was wonderful!
Here are some of the stages this painting took, on it’s way to being what you see above.
I even had some pink and some polka dots on those far yellow trees, before I came to my senses. It really wasn’t working for me until I filled in the little woodsy area. This is the view I enjoyed from my deck every day, including all the colorful wildflowers. Can you say aaaaaaahhhhhhh?
