Last Day: Colorado Mountain Plein Air

The last day I was able to paint in the Colorado Plein Air Festival, I drove to Marshall Pass. The weather was quite sketchy so I tried to get up and painting rather quickly- the above painting is of Antora Mountain - there are great views of it all along the drive up Marshall Pass- the weather didn't stay like this for long however so I took off down the mountain as the clouds were quite ominous and as I rounded the bend I saw a nice little view of aspen- the sun popped out just long enough for me to paint it rather quickly

and as I was packing up, the weather moved right in- and that was the end of my week of painting... The party was fun but I was too busy talking to take any pictures of the event-

Hi Susan, I like these two paintings and I believe the one of the three aspen trees is my favorite. I think as time goes by you're going to known for your beautiful brush work.
Very nice!

Hi Eldon, I am so glad to hear from you- I hope you are feeling better!
Thank you- I just love brushwork and so I appreciate your comment so much. If I could be known for beautiful brushwork I would be one happy camper!
