This month I am doing new pieces for Rare Gallery in Jackson Hole. Rick and Hollee have asked me for tall vertical paintings of wolves, bison and horses in earth tones.  So I struggle NOT to paint like rainbow bright!

I chose a wolf with a face fully turned and you will see tomorrow if you watch the slideshow of the paint itself how it evolved to this position in stead.  I slept on it, woke up and came into the studio and changed it all up!

I love doing the layers of thick buttery oils. I never realized how much paint I use on each painting until this year when I watched other artists use so very little paint doing their work. Since the thick palette knife is my signature painting, I will continue with it.

Tomorrow will be the whole story.  Laurie
