Snow Goose Painting in Progress

About a week and a half ago I stopped by the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge on my way back from the Peppertree Art Show (which was an amazing end to one of the best shows in the country). Many species were numerous on the refuge including white-fronted geese and snow geese. This group of geese was one of many to come into the refuge while we were there. At times, tens of thousands would get up and swirl around like a massive tornado then set back down.
This painting is in progress. My goal is to give the geese a smooth, soft, realistic appearance. Other than that, you can get the idea of what it will look like.

Peppertree Art Show Grand Finale!

Currently I am on the road heading to Santa Ynez for the final installment of the Peppertree Art Show. This 32-year old show is coming to an end of a long and prestigious run. At this last show they will have 100 artists, who have been involved with the Peppertree through the years, in attendance with each showing four of their best paintings. It should be quite an extravaganza and jam packed with Bob Eubanks hosting the festivities. The show, which is by invitation only, is this Saturday and Sunday at the Peppertree Ranch. To obtain an invitation you can visit their website or call (805) 688-6205.
