"In the Chisos" ----- in progress

.... Still in progress, almost complete.

Oil on panel, 16"x20"

This painting is still in progress. Posting it and looking at it online helps me to see any major changes that need to be made. This photo has a "hot spot" in the sky from the light used for photographing. I will try to avoid this problem in the final image.

Revised again, Oil on panel, 5"x7"
