"Franklin Mountains"

My wife brought me a beautiful hardcover book "Sergei Bongart" who was the famous Russian Impressionist Artist for my birthday.  I am going thru some changes in my style after the workshop from Guido Frick who had studied under Sergei.  I did this second painting of the Franklin Mountains as my experment of using the Bongart method.  This painting measured 30" X 30" and found that everyone who see this second painting compared to the first one that I did before the workshop like the second one better. I will find out more later if I need to redo the first one using more looser brushstrokes and brighter colors. There is so much more to learn the Bongart method that I cannot wait to teach this to my students.
