"Marsh Madness 1 and 2" - © Chris Greco 2015

 "Marsh Madness 1"
12x9" oil on Arches Oil Paper.
I like this paper. It took me a few tries to get used to it but I think it is a nice alternative 
surface and the price is right.

"Marsh Madness 2"
9x7" oil on illustration board.
I prepared a bunch of boards for a "Brother Bear" painting/workshop/research trip we took to Wyoming about 13 or 14 years ago...I still had a few that had never been used.
I believe in planning ahead and... I rarely ever throw anything away.

 "A Walk In March"
40x30" oil on Canvas.
I began this in early March. I don't think I'm done with it yet but it's time to let it rest. I'll look at it again in a few weeks or so and see how I feel about it then.

"Reclining On The Bank"
9x12 oil on masonite panel.
A quick sketch on a sunny but chilly afternoon.

"March, Distant Ice"
12x9" oil on Arches Paper

"A Patch of Snow Across the River"
12x9" oil on Arches Paper.
March is often overcast gray, wet, cold and muddy in Ohio as it was on this day. There was a little bit of sun in the morning but it didn't last. I find it very difficult to paint.
