We added three more colors today and while its subtle to most viewers we are slowly adding depth to the picture. If you look closely you can see changes in the ground and the clouds.
It's been a while since either of us have managed to look at the blog page. We have been working in the studio all winter trying to make as much work as we can before we head out on the road for our show season. It's been tricky this year trying to decide what images to make as well as what sizes to make as well. The success of "Attitude" (the Rooster) had us looking at more large scale pieces but we still wanted to keep working on smaller more detailed works as well. We ended up with quite a bit of new work in the end to take out on the road that we are pretty proud of.
Sometimes though we decide to make something for other reasons altogether and this year is special for us. We are going to have a wedding in our family! So we wanted to see how we could best help the wonderful couple who have decided to do it all themselves. My son and his lovely Katie live outside of Seattle and we figured what better way to pay tribute to them than a piece of art that means something to them and us. A portion of each sale will go into a savings account for them to use for the wedding. So we have started working on " Snoqualmie Falls II". We are updating it as we go on our Instagram page and our Facebook page and we are hoping when its done it will be a fitting piece of art for them that represents the beautiful part of the country where they met and fell in love.
