|Summer Cottonwoods - 12x12", plein air|

The view faces to the north, slightly west, and the La Platas can be seen in the distance.
Wayne fished while I painted this, and while this cloud changed forms while I painted, it remained in essentially the same location...until about 10 minutes before I finished, and suddenly, the sky was filled with clouds.
A few sprinkles hit the windshield literally seconds after I put the easel in the car - talk about timing!
From our top deck yesterday afternoon:
We are leaving tomorrow for yet another three-night trip in the mountains - this time, over by Rico. Our Bayfield friends, Sarah and Todd, are already camping in the area with their horses, and we'll be rendezvousing with them in an area known as "the meadows".
As always, the painting gear is coming along, and the river to paint this time will be the Dolores. I might even see if I can drive over and paint in Rico itself.
Everyone have a great weekend!
