Summer in the Colorado high country

Last year was a very wet year, with a record amount of snow over the winter and good rains in the summer.  As a result, the wildflowers were spectacular.  This year is the complete opposite as we now have drought conditions.  I hiked Shrine Ridge a week or two ago and it looked nothing like this painting I did from a photo of same area the year before.   In this painting there is snow on the peaks, and it was all gone by May this year.  I am trying to figure out which paintings to enter into the Women Artists of the West show.  The deadline is August 1st, and this may be one of them.
