I'm very excited to receive sample copies of the new Traditional Chinese edition of Imaginative Realism.
It's published by Booklife, who also published Color and Light. Please let me know if you see copies in bookshops in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Here's a slice of the mountain forest in northern Colorado. It's a scene of organized chaos, which I deciphered in gouache.
Below is a 5-minute YouTube video that takes you through all the steps.

Yesterday Jeanette and I, our son Frank, and his dog Smooth hiked up to Jewel Lake in the Medicine Bow Mountains of northern Colorado.
I brought the painting gear but forgot to put on sunblock, so I was pretty roasted by the end of the day.
The air was above freezing, so I was able to do a gouache painting of the view from up there.
I made a 1-minute video and uploaded it (above) directly to Blogger. It should be embedded above as a playable video. Does it work on your computer or do you just get an empty space?
