When the sun shines there are some interesting shapes to paint.
Some days the shadow is really vibrant against the snow and winter cattails. It seems the colder the darker.
These are a couple of small paintings I have finished lately .
Looking Forward: Creating our Future November 3 – December 31, 2016 This is the painting I submitted for the group exhition this year.
I was at the Lake of the Rivers again and thought I should show a bit of water this time. I am still working from the same place…. today was the day of lady bugs and a little gopher who was watching me.
This is at the same coulee by the Lake of the Rivers but just looking further along. It was done just a few days after the last one but somehow I never got it posted. So the colors are still july colors and the only wild adventure that day was a woodtic and garter snake.
This is the second time I got out to paint at the Lake of the Rivers. The coulee is so beautiful with such a range of color. What a challenge to get the light colors in. The weather was hot and windy but lovely. A mother deer and her fawn came up behind me curious. She had been pawing at the ground ( she left two big holes in the ground that I saw after), which I never heard and then she snorted …which led me to scream …which then scared the both of them off. So I decided I better be a little more aware of my surroundings when Im out there!
