Finished!!!!!!!!!!!!! Large Landscape Commission

"Grazing American Bison" Here is the finished painting! My wife, ShLoe, and my good friends Mike, Kevin, and Chris McCormick helped install the piece on a wall. The painting will be the background for a museum display. The McCormick's are a creative multitalented family and I am proud to know them.

Here is the finished painting installed on the wall. With the brooding artist standing in front of it. (Note: Most people don't realize this entire piece was completed using nothing more than a 9 inch paint roller. wink, wink)

A paint roller, hee hee! If only life were that easy ;)

This is really something. I think you've managed to capture a kind of latent strength in the animals. They're so serene and beautiful, but there's an awe-inspiring solidity and power about them too. Great work!!!

You're so amazing. I read you daily and love your work. Would that I could afford a painting! You have a world out there that you don't hear from much, but you just make us so happy.
