James Peak    8x10    oil/panel

I painted with the PAAC group today in Genesse. This view was on property of Noel Custer who let our group paint there today (thanks!). There was a ton of great things to paint and it was hard to chose. I don't get to see these mountain views too often so this one was real hard to pass up. James Peak (center right) is a 13er on the Continental Divide. The aspens are turning and you could see them just below tree line over on the mountain. The ghost town of St. Marys (now a vacation/cabin town) is right where the orange and yellows are on the mountain. There is a permanent snow field just above the town that is a great hike in the summer.

This painting just glows. The complimentary colors combined with the exact amount of dark, light and mediumm values are thrilling to see.
