Plein air at First Light

I got up early and went to the ranch as the sun was rising. Actually, sunrise really isn't that early anymore. The light was beautiful - hitting the trees - making them appear as if they were stained glass.
I had an audience as I painted early in the morning- they really were a pretty quiet bunch until they decided to take off and thrash through the willows...

It's cool the way those fall leaves glow in that early morning light. You nailed it!

Hey Eldon- nice to hear from you- thanks, it was so beautiful that morning - I could hear the sandhill cranes fly right over the tops of the trees as they were heading to the ponds.

Actually I'm waiting to drag you to the ranch to paint cows- sounds like fun- right?
