I love, love, love this painting! The colors, the subject matter, the light and shadows. It says "Colorado" to me: aspen and pine trees, mountains, boulders, blue sky, a grassy meadow, and even a touch of wildflowers.
And one of the best moments of the whole week was captured in my sketch of the South Platte River.
Late afternoon, sitting on the banks of the river with my sketchbook on my lap, while my mother and sister chatted and watched Karli tossing stones in the water - these are the moments to remember from a vacation. That's why I make the time to stop, look, and paint.
