have you ever encountered bears while painting outside? Nice job on the Chevy!

Thanks Mike,
never while working, but you never know
I have worked in the past looking over shoulder for migrating grizzlies,

Beautiful chevy Dan. I believe most of your work that i've seen here has all been plein air, do you ever do in studio work?

This is a great painting -- love the colours. I'm so glad we don't have bears roaming around in Australia -- I'd never get any painting done for looking over my shoulder. :clap: :clap: :thumbsup:

Of course I love the car!...180 visitors to your open studio!...Wow! That sounds like a great turn out...sorry you didn't sell as many as you would like.:( If I was there I would have a bought a painting...:smug:
How did you keep count? Do you have everyone sign a guest book? I'll bet the bear refused to give you his e-mail.:D
