Here's a little portrait of a Rag Doll cat commissioned by a friend. She is one year old and a very quiet and sweet little thing! She posed perfectly for the camera. I liked this full face view because of her beautiful blue eyes. I couldn't stand the thought of only painting one eye (profile) or partial in a 3/4 view.

The third day of our workshop we headed north for a spectacular view of the Boulder Mountains. I like to paint this view in different seasons. You can drive almost to the huge patches of trees on the face of the mountain (which I have done in the fall). They are aspen trees and are often orange, not yellow. Our open sage hills usually have a sprinkling of confir trees and red rock outcroppings. This area of Idaho is a high mountain desert..sage on the south facing slopes, conifers on the north sides. Tall cottonwoods grown along streams and rivers, as do willows and alder.
