Having So Much Fun with Landscapes....back to Oils



    I rearranged my studio, put away all my acrylics, got out my oils and went for it.  I haven't painted with oils for awhile and have rediscovered what a wonderful medium this is.  The perfect medium for landscapes in my opinion.  There is just something about how easy it is to blend the colors.   I didn't use any cold wax with these oil paintings, just returned to my painting origins.   I'm really enjoying it.   
    Both of these paintings, titled,   "San Juans 1"  and  "San Juans 2" are painted on 20x16 canvases.  One is early summer and the other later.  I sure you can figure out which is which.   That is if you know anything about Colorado color.
