45. Trail Crew, Pecos Wilderness

12x16 oil/linen

Actually started this one before Christmas, but had to put it aside until today.  The image was inspired by an old (1950's?) photo of Santa Fe National Forest rangers building cairns.  I think they were up in the Pecos Wilderness from the looks of the photo, but not totally sure.  This crew is wrapping up for the day and heading down off the ridge.

Happy days after Christmas- this painting looks great with the sense of distance, body gestures, and all those subtle diagonals going on.
Now that one holiday is over, time to paint before the next one comes!
