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)

Large Landscape

102" x 156"
I haven't posted in awhile. My workload has been heavy but shows signs of weakening soon. I am looking forward to finishing some miniature paintings again in the near future. The large painting is almost finished and is scheduled to be installed in the museum next Monday. I hope it is dry by then! I'll post some photos of the finished painting and then again later of the finished project.
