with "Firethorn & Antler"

"Firethorn and Antler" was delivered today and the patrons were very pleased with the finished painting. It was fun to see their reaction when I brought it out.  

Time to start something new!

First Final...

I think it's finished but there's always a possibility that I'll find something that I want to change when I look at it tomorrow. The photo shows the image as it is placed on the paper.  I left a lot of extra paper around it to allow the for more flexibility in framing and matting. 

Right now, though, it feels done.

The cedar fence post went much easier than I thought it would even though it was the most complicated part of the composition. The whole process has been very enjoyable in spite of the "false start" involving some nasty masking fluid stains.

Here is a closer view of the finished painting to show a little more detail...
