Sky over Conejos 16 x 20
I will have this one with me in Shreveport in a couple of days.
Last month when we were there, Colorado looked a lot like this! But my painting friends Rick and Louisa up there have told me this week that the air is crisp and the leaves are golden....already! When I painted the study for this one (along the Conejos) I was with my friend Pat...it started to hail on us so we ran out of there pretty fast.
The best part about "location painting" is that each painting evokes a special memory for the artist. So I think of hail hitting me on the head whenever I look at this one! Don't you??
