There, I can say no.  I am saying “no, i did not stop painting”.  On the contrary.  Below is another study, this one of a Fred Choate painting.

“Afternoon Glow (aft Fred Choate)”, 16×20 oil on canvas, by Rog Lyngaas, 17nov09, triple primary palette.

“Afternoon Glow”, 12×16 oil on canvas, by Fred Choate, 17nov09, Choate8 palette.

In this post, I am showing you Fred’s painting as well, so that everyone can visualize the difference in style and design.  We worked from the same scene and painted at the exact same time, without watching what the other was doing. So why do I call such a thing a “study”?

Simply, he is the one who designed the motif.

In this case it is a scene typical of the Payette National Forest, between Garden Valley and Cascade, in Idaho.  By typical, I mean, typical right now, since there is snow in them there hills.

Someday I will do a series of diptychs with another painter.  Where we both interpret the others paintings.  Of course this would require a difference in style and design.  The result would be an interesting show I think.
