Buffalo Mountain    9x12    oil/panel

Out again with PAAC today. This time it was a special trip to Silverthorn to paint at Barrett Edwards (http://barrettedwards.com/ home. Many thanks for having us up, it is a beautiful spot. We were painting along the Blue River and it was a fantastic fall day. I liked this view of Buffalo Mountain with a nice small marsh in the foreground. Like yesterday, there was way too many nice things to paint. The aspens are all turning, the sky was deep blue and the river looked great. Oddly, this painting was a hard one to get out. Not sure why. It was definitely one of those paintings that didn't come together until the last 10 minutes or so. I really didn't think it was going to work out at all until I added the bits of yellow and orange. In the end I think it turned out fine.

This painting is available at the Colorado Mountain Art Gallery in Georgetown, Colorado
