Fall has come to the High Country (almost)

Leaves are starting to change, but it has been slow this year.  Our first frost was late, just a couple of nights ago, but now they will change faster.  This was painted plein air and then tweaked just a little in the studio.   If I go back and see these trees they will probably be a brilliant yellow now!

Headed to a gallery in Denver

The title of this is Evening Blues, and it is headed to the Framed Image gallery in Denver for their
"Homeward" show.  It is not one of my small series, but an 11x14.  I am painting larger between the small ones.

Painting small and often

This summer I attended a three day paint out in Crested Butte with the Plein Air Artists of Colorado (PAAC).  We had lots of fun and painted every day.  This is one I painted after I got home.  I saw this dog chasing sticks his owner was throwing to him and had to photograph him.  The color of the water was amazing, and the lake was aptly named Emerald Lake.  A 6x6, this is one of several of that size that I have done lately, trying to do one each day, unless I am working on bigger paintings.   I hesitate to call it a "project" as many have done with small daily paintings, as I know already that I won't do one daily.  But in my head, it is called 6x6x60, meaning that my intention is to do 60 of them.  It might take me a year (or more) but I will eventually get 60 of them done.
