I called the Painting "Homage Mountain," in honor of S. Laurence. My painting is not an attempt to copy but to paint a similar composition using what ever skill I have developed so far in my journey.

I was hesitant to but this painting out there into the big cold world on fineartamerica. First of all it's a personal subject matter and second it's not my best work nor is it a particularly arresting image.
Also, I discussed in an earlier blog , my initial discomfort with having my paintings printed on bath towels, shower curtains and coffee cups. I got over that and now I and many of my friends and family have real nice coffee cups.
I wanted to release it into the world in case people who knew Kate might be interested in it. But I didn't really want this, almost a memorial painting, used that way. With a little experimenting I discovered that I could choose what to permit each individual one of my paintings to be reproduced on. I limited this image to being printed on canvas, fine art paper, acrylic, metal and wood. Oh, and greeting cards.

I posted my 26th painting on fineartamerica.com this morning. 25 was the limit for the free account. I don't plan on stopping painting so I ponied up the fee and upgraded to premium. With the premium package came my own website. I think it was worth the annual premium fee.
Take a look...

My daughter stopped by for a visit yesterday evening. I was showing her the paintings and prints that I had sold recently. While gesturing towards a wall of framed paintings, I made the observation that I would like to sell a few more of my larger Alaskan moose and caribou pictures. She immediately emphatically stated "Not that one, that one is my favorite, it's mine!"
Consequently if you were contemplating purchasing "Blizzard," you missed your chance. It is off the market. You can still purchase a fine art print of the painting in convenient sizes. Or, if you choose, as a fleece blanket, canvas print or coffee cup and one of these Print On Demand sites.

I would like to invite any of you who have been "Likeing" but not "Sharing" my paintings to feel free to "Share" at least one painting, perhaps your favorite. Or you can "Share" this blog entry or every painting I post. Thanks.
I posted several paintings since my last blog entry in November. This particular one I call "North Country Sunset." It's my most recent painting, done just last week. Consequently I didn't put the original up for sale yet because it will need several weeks to dry. I'll make a note of it when it's available.
Meanwhile as always, you can purchase a print of it on-line.
I've almost run out of older paintings I selected from my earlier work. I gave away most of the best ones to friends and family before I was convince to go public. I may go back into the archives,(the storage space in my garage/studio,) when I am done to see if I missed any that I might show publicly.
Otherwise very soon I will only be posting new work.
