very nice work......do you work with other mediums??
No although I want to start painting in oils.
I dig this one. Did you take your gear out to this spot and do it or from a
From photos I took up near the canyon. Gorgeous landscape. I have to go back. There are painters that paint rocks exclusively called rock painters. Sounds fun. I'm not much of a landscape painter Amber.
Here's another horse painting.

wouldn't be a bad thing if you went to oils, it would at best guess complement on the stuff you've done with water color (just a guess there)

congrats on the sale, btw

I've been watching a lot of paintings with oils on Youtube. Your work is great with watercolors. When I was in highschool, my art teacher told me something I'm sure I'll never forget when it comes to art.. "you like the control of the pen" (after viewing my sketchbook primarily in pen). Watercolor always, as a kid, used to intimidate me because I wasn't used to the loose, free look it provides by nature of the paper you're using. I like my lines to go exactly where I want them to go. So I was just curious about your own thought process on this. I know you're very skilled in watercolor, particularly on lighting, and also very skilled when it comes to perspective. What makes you want to get into oils?

Keep up the good work, Dan. I'm happy a lot of other people enjoy watching you progress

Just curious, why did you give it up? I can tell from looking at this pic you have talent
Long story, but when I was younger I drew a lot. In the early 80s in High School, took the district art show, then the state of California. Then I qualified for a national art competition in Dallas Texas. I drew this detailed picture of an old black woman, every wrinkle. All the competitors there thought I would take the competition and thought this other guy was better than I. I took forth in the nation and didn’t get the college scholarship because of it. I was hurt.

After that I just drew every now and then when something inspired me. The drawing above, I drew at work when I was the Infirmary officer. My last piece I every drew. Just lost love for it.

Been a while I know. After I lost my shitty job in April I fell into a deep depression where I didn't get out of bed for four months.
Didn't paint either but I bounced back. I usually do. Thanks Lexipro, lol. Also I was awarded the Bill and Janet Tifft grant for arts and sciences in June and the Ellen Fountain Studio award for transparent watercolor in May (I think). Any recognition for an artist with a fragile ego such as myself is a good thing. Plus it helps with the bills.
Here's a few I don't know if I posted these but here ya go.

Man, I love your watercolors skills. I can see how you can pay the bills with your ability.

I see your love of the desert in your art also. I’m a desert rat myself.

Sorry to hear about the job and the depression that follows, but the awards are very impressive and you know I'm a big fan of your work. It's good to see you around.
