Eastern Colorado Western Kansas


Eastern Colorado Western Kansas – Painted 2/22/2010 – Oil on 9 x 12 Canvas Panel – I don't know exactly where this is as I painted it from a picture I took either in the early 1960s. In those days I didn't make notations on the backs of my photographs; but it was somewhere out there in eastern Colorado or far western Kansas. It's easier to notate now with the cameras being digital and the accompanying software that allows notation. This is a commonplace scene of the area and to me makes a beautiful painting subject. The western Kansas and Eastern Colorado skys usually presents world class scenes to make you lose yourself in their recreating on canvas. Your comments are welcome.

About rbaker

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
