Plein Air of Mount Blanca

9x12
It was a beautiful evening and I could see that most likely as the sun was setting it would hit Mt Blanca nicely. I finished cleaning up after dinner and ran over to the ranch to get set up in time. Lo and behold- the clouds stayed away long enough for me to knock out this little painting. I have faced this view many times but usually in the morning which can be too cool for my taste. This scene was warm- just what I was looking for.

Hi Susan, Wow, this one is really nice. I most like those large strokes in the trees at left. The trunks of the trees were painted in with sure sure strokes as well. Great job!

Thanks Eldon, this was a painting that just seemed to flow rather easily- I wish they were all like that.
