Las Trampas, New Mexico [aft Walt Gonske]

“Las Trampas, New Mexico [aft Walt Gonske]”, 11×14 oil on canvaboard, by Rog Lyngaas, 12may09, Choate7 palette.

Finally the next step on the “path to Taos” has been taken.  My mentor suprised me with the challenge to study Walt Gonske paintings instead of just looking at them.  So here is my first study of a Walt Gonske Painting.


Basement Does Not Leak…

“Southern Wisconsin in the Fall”, 9×12 oil on canvas by Rog Lyngaas, 20aug07, using Choate7nt palette [cropped jpg].

Everyone in Madison, Wisconsin desires for a beautiful home in a beautifully green neighborhood; but mostly a basement that does not leak.

I found one.  It is in Boise, Idaho.  It houses the Basement Gallery in downtown Boise.  I am pleased to be part of an art show called the “Annual Traditional Exhibition” there this May and June. For a detailed discussion click on this link.

The opening reception is 5-9pm on May 7th, the 1st Thursday of May.

For more information on the show, please write or call Perry Allen at the Basement Gallery, 928 W Main St, Boise, ID 83702, USA, 208.333.0309

I will see you there.
