Old Faithful

24" x 18" Oil on panel.
$395 - Shipping to US included.

This one has been on my easel for a while. It was nice to get it completed and hopefully I can get in a New Year's (Resolution) swing. The holidays, woodworking, and a sore back have cut into my painting productivity.

Old Faithful truly is amazing when you consider how long you have to anxiously wait for other geysers to deliver in the same basin. I captured it from the side with the crowd. I thought it was a perfect day with a deep blue sky and the wind blowing the sheets of water and steam very nicely.

This looks great! I love the vapor smudged into the blue sky.

Thanks, the painting is from a photo I took on a visit in 2009. I am careful to use only reference to which I have copy rights. The are all mine, public domain, or I have the photographer's permission.
