This little painting was inspired from a trip last spring to Glenwood Washington. Very near my favorite Aspen trees.
Yesterday and today I traveled to Catherine Creek State Park for some plein air work. Here are the rough results, or you could call them "painterly".

Wow, Donna! The first one took my breath away! Gorgeous painting! Your plein airs are as fresh as ever - very nice!

Thank you Donna. It is good to get out. We will have wind and rain again on friday. I will try again in the morning!

Donna, what a wonderful painting! It looks so summer-y with the darker greens and blues. Very beautiful work!! Which do you like best, a.m or P.m for your plein-air works? I am so glad its getting warmer, but the winds really blow in the Spring!!

Thank you Ida! I love the early morning. When summer comes along I like nothing better than to be out at first light. Everything is so lovely and you have the whole day in front of you. Evening is just as beautiful but when it is over, it is over.

Donna, it was so good to see you up on your feet again out painting...and at Catherine Creek! Wasn't it just gorgeous that day! Thanks for meeting up with us, hope for more of that real soon before the flowers fade.
Ciao for now,
