Granite Outcrop

After many redo....this is finally finished. 

Final Immersed

This is a redo....of  Immersed2 below.    There were several color and composition problems in the first one and I think I've fixed most of them.   This is a Semi-Abstract painting and  I wanted this first mountain scene to be more abstract....so now I have to do another one..................

Colorado Series Starts!

It's taken me some time to come to terms with the beauty and amazing scenery in Colorado.  I am one of those lucky people who has lived there and visited.    This new series now begins......  Immersed 1, acrylic on 30x22 paper. and Immersed 2, 40"x30" acrylic on canvas.     Abstract is the only route possible for me.    Overwhelmed with the rushing water, the surrounding varied blue/green forests...thus  Immersed 1.      And the mountains......Immersed 2    I might have to tweek them a bit, but I think they are finished.

Feline Flying

I started this one before my vacation..................doing a series on Flight.   This is fun.   25"x25" acrylic on canvas.

Samurai goes to Happy Customer

It's so nice when someone likes your work.    Thanks to the nameless person who just purchased one of my favorite Empires to Ashes Series paintings titled,  Samurai.   It will definitely brighten walls.

Enjoying Colorado

I have been taking pictures, sketching and painting in the lodge because it is raining. Most of the paintings I will be doing are rough watercolors for reference and for larger pieces at home. Just getting ready to go out to take more pictures and do more sketching. Lizard Head Pass 12,000 plus feet today. Check out my vacation shots on Facebook. Sue Nosler Gray
