In the Mountains, 6x8, oil, $95
This little painting was done in the mountains about 50 miles away. My husband fished and I painted. Its just off a dirt road that leads to Laramie Peak. As I was painting a car went by slowly, backed up and pulled over. Two folks from up the road got out and came over to see what I was painting. Turns out they were on their way home from an artists guild meeting in Wheatland and they also do plein air painting here and in Arizona in the winter. We had a good conversation about the joy of painting outside. You just never know who you'll run into when outside painting.
