Teton Aspens, Plein Air Camp Hill Next Week!

OK, I admit it, I've had a thing for aspen trees lately, if you have not been able to tell. I have been putting them in many of my recent paintings. Call it my "Aspen Phase." And it's a phase that could last a long time. That beautiful white bark catches so many of the surrounding colors, and the black patterns are so fun to play with.

Teton Aspens, my latest painting, is a beautiful rendition of how ambient light can effect the white bark of aspen trees. The white barn picks up all kinds of blues, greens and even magenta colors. Check out the brushwork and all the color on the aspen bark in the detail image below. These aspens were on the western side of the Grand Teton Mountains in Wyoming. I wanted to give the viewer beautiful display of light and color along with a feeling of depth and mystery. Contact me at to add this unique and beautiful painting to your collection.

Just a reminder, Plein Air Camp Hill starts next week. I will be painting there starting Monday. The event opens to the public Friday, May 16th. Click here to get more information. Be there, it is a great event with great art!

Also, some may wonder why I'm not doing Plein Air Easton this year. I did not apply this year since I was accepted into Door County Plein Air which starts the same day Plein Air Easton ends. If you can make Door County I have been told it is an incredible event with some of the top Plein Air artists in the world. More information to follow.
