The Road to Pinos Creek

Pinos Creek View
14x18


I haven't been posting my paintings as well as I should so I will do some catching up here.  This painting was done at the beginning of fall, up Pinos Creek Road west of Del Norte, CO; the trees were just beginning to turn gold and although I was interested in painting aspen, I saw this scene and decided to pull over and paint.  This was done at about 4 in the afternoon and clouds were starting to boil in.  This was difficult to paint as the sun played peekaboo the whole time.
