This was painted a few days ago near Lyons - now I'm sure that snow is all gone.
It felt more like summer today than late winter. The down-side is that the wind is blowing, and the foothills are on fire (again!). I'll be saying an extra prayer for my friends who live up near Jamestown and up Lefthand Canyon.
Here's another little plein air study done close to home - gas prices and aging vehicles are once again conspiring to limit the range of my daily wanderings - but that's ok - it just reminds me there's plenty to paint just outside my backdoor.
