Teton Splendor by Misted-Dream Teton Splendor by Misted-Dream

Here's a painting I've been working on for a while now, and I just finished it a couple of days ago. It's for a contest in October, so I'm glad I was able to finish it in time. :)

I'm actually quite happy with how this one turned out. This one is 16" X 14" Acrylic on masonite. Refs were a combination of my own and some from the RIL on WetCanvas.

This piece placed in the top 50 of the international contest, America's Parks Through the Beauty of Art I, and went on tour with the other 49 pieces throughout the country in 2013.

For Sale: Professionally framed. Note me if interested.

Well it would have been definitively perfect if you had add ray of sun lights, which would have given a golden coloured light on the main subject, and on the grass on the first plan too !

This is a beautiful outdoor scene! I love the lighting. I also love the expression on the central animal's face. He looks like he's smiling up in wonder at the beauty above him!

I really like this one! I just finished a job as an elk technician for Theodore Roosevelt National Park and I am anxiously waiting to get started on an elk painting myself as soon as I finish my current project. I got a lot of cool photos to incorporate.

This is beautiful however! I love the light that you captured in the mountains and the trees. The elk's hide is quite accurate as well! I do have a critique for you... So I'm a bit of a nerd here, but the sage brush you depicted in the foreground should have some holes near the top where the leaves are thinner. So that you can see through some parts. haha.. Just something I instantly notice, don't mind me tho.. It's awesome!!

Hey, thanks very much! Ah, that must have been so much fun! Elk are definitely my favorite cervine, just in front of moose. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I had a lot of fun painting his hide, and for a change, the whole painting actually turned out how I had imagined it (which never seems to happen as often as I like, haha). And thanks for the critique! I honestly love any and all critique because it helps you see things for future paintings as well as areas you can improve on. So thanks for that!

Thank you for your nice comment on my journal entry. I've kept a Gratitude Journal for 26 years and it really does make a difference, especially on difficult days. I know it was one of the two biggest reasons I was able to rise above and overcome the severe anxiety attacks I used to have (the other reason is I learned to pray "Do Not Be Afraid" Bible verses).

Haven't had one for almost six years now. Ann Voskamp's Website is an absolute joy to discover! This entry on her Blog is fabulous, but make sure to have Kleenex on hand when you read it. Brings on wonderful tears of joy!

Haven't been very good about keeping up on DeviantARt. Very far behind in my correspondence and in telling you how much I like Teton Splendor. Absolutely beautiful!

Have a grand New Year! Love, Barb

Ah, that's okay! Everybody gets busy now and then. ;) And thank you very much! I had a lot of fun with this one.

Hope your new year is grand as well!

Dang! That's awesome! Again, you impress me with your paintings! Every time you paint, they all seem to have a sense of beauty to them, which reaches out and touches me. The realness of your paintings also does that, because you take into account every detail of the animals and the scenery.

Ten out of ten, two thumbs up :iconthumbsupplz::iconthumbsupplz:, and five stars :star::star::star::star::star:!
