Soon I’ll be posting paintings of autumn and winter landscapes, as I take in and attempt to capture the changes of the land around me. For now though, a few more images of summer…. Here, a little painting I did in August, of a June afternoon. We’re just south of the Rayado River, where it crosses the road just east of Zastrow. Once we turn ’round those trees on the right, we’ll dip our toes in the cold mountain water.

I will say I’m pleased with how my trees have been turning out this year. Finally feeling like I’m getting the hang of conveying them with paint.
