Telluride Gold, 10x30" oil on linen panel, 2016.Telluride Gold, 10x30" oil on linen panel, 2016. I chose this painting as my artists choice painting for the 2016 Telluride Plein Air Festival. I have painted this view before at sunrise but not in this new horizontal format I wanted to try out. I found myself regularly using a 1x2 format at plein air shows, but this is the first show I have pushed that idea into a longer thinner format. I brought both 10x30" and 6x30" blank panels with me along with some custom frames built for me by my friend and fellow artist Dave Malin. I like the potential of this format and will continue using it for future events.
