Edgar Payne is one of my favorite landscape painters. I am using his work and style to influence the painting I am doing this week. The painting is a three foot by 5 foot Western landscape for my parents. They found some film stills from the John Ford movie, The Searchers, for me to work from.
When I was in high school I lived for catwalk fashion. I had subscriptions to all the American fashion mags and spent lots of time at bookstore viewing the foreign Vogue magazines.

Fall is my favorite season, and this collection shows why it is so great for fashion. Makes me want to paint.
