New project starts today! A=antelope and antenna

These are the first two of the new 75 for 75 project.  I'll paint at least one painting-a-day for the next 30 days.  Shane will contribute work when he can.  My paintings will be 5" x 7" oil and will sell for $75 each (unframed)  plus $6 priority mail.

This time, instead of painting bird studies, I'm painting subject matter that I've always wanted to paint, but haven't had the opportunity.  My gallery in Beaver Creek, The Walt Horton Fine Art Gallery, has requested paintings of pronghorn antelope, which I've never painted this pronghorn study is warming me up for larger pronghorn paintings for the gallery.   I enjoyed painting this little piece.

I'm teaching a workshop in Tuscany in early September, so the second painting of the day, A=Antenna is a warm-up exercise for Tuscany. This was done from reference taken on my last trip to Italy - the view from one of the hilltop towns - where dozens of antennas sprout from 18th century buildings.
