A Promise of Spring

The Wind has not blown for the last two days and I see slight bits of green here and there. The San Luis Valley is always the last part of Colorado to green up- the valley must just be like a big ice box or something. I have to help with prom this afternoon so knew that I had a very small window of opportunity to paint - so I ran over to the ranch and painted this 8 x 10. There were little pieces of green here and there- (the left field in the painting) but I had to look hard. The scene before me was beautiful even without the green so I set up and tried to capture the subtle beauty. I could here ducks quacking in the distance and a few cranes honking(?) here and there. It was a very enjoyable day.
