I have done 3 paintings so far. The idea is to end up with over 100. Let's see if I can meet that goal. I will post photos here as of Thursday along with the photos of the scenes so you can see how I did the paintings. See you all on Saturday. Leaving Cody, WY in a few minutes. McDonald's has free wifi in all their restaurants so I can keep posting while on the road. I will be in Jackson Hole tonight. If any of you are interesting in visiting me there you may want to paint along with me. Eric Wilcox at the downtown Wilcox gallery will always know where I am.

We made it to Jackson Hole, WY. I have done 5 plein air paintings now. The weather is great here nice and cool. Ken and I are ready to tackle all the mountain scenes again. I plan to record some plein air painting sessions to broadcast to you later. We will be here until the last class, then we head south to do the Utah and Grand Canton scenes, some seascapes in California, Oregon coast, etc.

Well i have seen Joes classes which are wonderful and well worth taking them. However today i was sooooo blessed to have been able to come to Jackson hole and meet Joe in person and his lovely wife and ken. What a wonderful family. Now folks i want you to know i am a true die hard follower of Joes. I sat threw a rain and HAIL storm to follow him threw an awesome painting of the tetons. Im on vacation and wow it is the best part of it. Seeing the actual painting as it was being done in the proper colors. Also seeing the view he was painting as the sun lit the mountains. You could not pay me a million dollars to change one moment of this day. THANKS JOE AND FAMILY FOR MAKING MY DAY!!!!!! and thanks to a wonderful patient husband who drove me all over town lost . While trying to find JOE. This will be a day i will remember for a life time.

Great work Johannes, you are getting me hooked on acrylics. I bought some Interactive acrylics to try. I find this media a little different, not using enough white.

Johannes looking at the paintings almost makes me feel like the weather here is cooler. It also gives us a chance to study what you are teaching us better. Now with your lessons hopefully we can all get better in our paintings faster. Thank you for sharing. Great looking paintings.

Lovely impressionistic paintings and expressive brush strokes. What a difference to confidently lay down a stroke w/o overworking.
It was esp. fun for me to see your rendition of the Gros Ventre Valley as i just finished reading a book by Ivan Doig called 'Dancing At The Rascal Fair" which took place in the Gros Ventre.
Thanks for sharing these for our inspiration!

Johanness, I don't suppose your Wyoming trip will extend into September will it? I'll be on vacation the whole week of labor day (5th-9th) and am seriously considering a trip to the Jackson area wether you're there or not but if you are that would be icing on the cake. :D

But now I see you are planning to be in Utah/Arizona after Wyoming this trip? Where will you be during the Labor day week?

Johannes Instructor]I will be leaving toward Seattle, Vancouver, the beginning of September then I head south down the coast of Oregon, California, Los Angeles, Grand Canyon, Vegas then up again towards Jackson near the end of September and will stay there probably 2 more weeks then head home mid September.
