San Juans in Green

San Juans in Green___6x8 oil study on linen panel____$150
I worked in the sketchbook again, today, but took a break to play with color. It's that time of year when the clouds build up on the mountain tops every day for an afternoon shower. So the best painting time is in the morning till about 2 pm....then it's time to read or nap or play games like my family likes to do. Just before the rains, my friend, Pat and I painted on the hillside near our cabins....ALL THOSE GREENS!!!
Tomorrow I will post more from the sketchbook!

I like the variety of greens going on in this. Is the crop picture a few posts back sorghum maybe?

I just got home to MO from CO on a painting trip. My favorite place was overlooking Crested Butte from the Washington Gluch. AFter painting weeks of KS Flinthills, the CO mountains and trees were a challenge. I have studied this painting and certainly appreciate your work. Any workshops in MO?
