KM2843 Illumination by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (8x10, landscape, oil painting)

This painting started as a warm up exercise. I painted over a painting I was not happy with and did this with very heavy strokes of paint on my brush and palette knife. I really like the mood of this piece as it reflects the warm glowing light I found in the scene that I photographed in Santa Fe many years ago. I have always wanted to paint this scene and don't know why the photo sat in a box for so long before I decided to paint it. As the photo was taken pre-digital it shows how long I have had it laying around!

KM2832 Along the River by Colorado Artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (8x10 oil, landscape)

Nothing like your car being unwilling to start when you are on your way to the mechanic! As I wait for AAA I decided it would be an good time to post another image. I painted this scene from a photo I took along the Columbia River in Oregon on my way to the coast. The Northwest is such a visual treat to a native Coloradoan as myself with all the water and atmospheric scenes.

KM2831 Summer's End by Colorado artist Kit Hevron Mahoney (8x10 original oil landscape)

I have returned from a glorious week in the mountains at our family place where there is no phone or internet service. We had perfect Colorado blue sky days with cool mornings and evenings. It was great to take a break from painting and just enjoy my surroundings. I am now ready to go back to the easel and paint for Brushstrokes upcoming show on October 5th where we are painting a representational and its abstraction. A fun challenge. Meanwhile, here is a small one done from some great reference in late summer at the Botanic Gardens from photos taken a few years ago.
