I'll hold off on signing it until I receive official approval. Then we'll get this submitted to the Mountain Oyster Club jury.
Deadline met😉

Whatever became of this couple...? (PART 2)

It turns out that he caught up to her somewhere near Whitehorse. "That's Your Grandma"
16x20 oil on board
Her life was a pursuit of simple joys and passions...a growing family, music, travel, a successful business and always the love of flying. He too had his accomplishments in life...the family ranch, now in their son's hands, was doing well, and the oil revenues were still quite good. But for their 40 years together he had only ever pursued one passion...and it was her.

Whatever became of this couple....? (PART 1)
"And She Flew Away" from a while ago

Their story... 'The oil was leaking again. A little 'X' was marked on the map and the pilot made an uneventful precautionary landing near the ranch house. But the repairs had taken longer than expected so the flight would have to continue in the morning. The cowboy who had been watching with interest offered a meal and a room. Over supper the flyer told exciting stories of learning to fly and eventually being able to buy the Jenny. There were impressive plans to fly the mail, or to become a bush pilot up in the Yukon. Maybe even Alaska. And bigger dreams to start an airline and someday fly the world! The cowboy spoke of his family. They had been ranching this land ever since his great grandfather had come to terms with the Blackfeet. And of himself more recently coming to very agreeable terms with the oil company. Now alone except for the few ranch hands, he didn't give much thought to travel anymore. He'd seen enough in France during the Great War.
The night was long, full of conversation and pleasant. The breakfast awkward and short. With the oil leak sorted out, the Jenny's engine ran perfectly again. During the warmup the little 'X' was changed to a heart.

A wave. A smile. And she flew away.

So that about does it for the background, figures and foreground. There were a few changes...(I didn't like the original colour of the dog 😏) Let's get going with the airplane.

Figures are about done. As soon as the sky dries we can work on the airplane and the trees.

Let's put it all together now..
"With Fresh Supplies"
18 x 24 oil on board A deHavilland Beaver departs a wilderness lake after a short visit with one of the summer residents. With fresh supplies, the camper heads back across the lake to his remote cabin...good for another two weeks. This painting will be available later this summer through Trailside Galleries, Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Thanks for following along!

So, the airplane is pretty much done. Kyle and Sara are checking my work to see if everything is in order. A few more adjustments to the background... we’re almost there.

We now have the water blocked in.. a very basic layer to arrange shapes. Details and colour adjustments still to come. Gotta get this one done in the next 10 days😳

We know the sky is going to take a while to dry so lets get that done. It may need changes once the airplane is done... anything can happen😉

A good start on the mountain... we’ll work on the treeline next.

A piece of Canadian aviation history visited Toronto this weekend. One of Trans Canada Air Lines’ (now Air Canada) ORIGINAL aircraft, Lockheed 10A CF-TCC was passing through. TCC flew the airlines’ original routes in 1937 and is one of the very few remaining examples in the world still flying.

Most of the time, I can see a finished painting in my head before any drawing starts. They don’t always work out, or sometimes a better idea takes over and so they change as they progress. Let’s see what happens with this scribbled concept. I’m thinking fall colours, blue shadows in the mountains and calm, clear water.
