A little bit of summer in these cold months: Crested Butte Wildflower Festival48"x36" I painted this after spending some time In Crested Butte Colorado in July a few years ago. I had many photo references and some En Plein air studies as well.
This painting was created with oil paint on stretched canvas by using a pallet knife no brushes. The textural effect and thick paint is how most of my paintings are made. I hope you enjoy it.
