10.5 x10.5 pastel and frozen watercolor on Uart paper $100.
Today I was double lucky!!!! Yipee.
First lucky: Today when I arrived at the reservoir Patty, the deputy manager, drives up and asks me if I want to paint on the other side (beyond the barbed wire fence). Do I???? Yipee!!!
So this is the view. As we drive back there it began to snow. Double yipee! The view was so beautiful I painted two, even though it was so cold. (Longjohns, my secret weapon)
From this view there is a tower in the distance. I tried hard not to focus on that tower at the expense of the tress on the right. I worked on the layering of space and color. I keep noticing and trying to understand why the reflective properties of ice is so different from water. It's simply seems dense. Anyone know?
I will post the second painting tomorrow since I will be going downtown to the Obama inauguration. What a wonderful moment in time it will be!!!!
THANK YOU PATTY for allowing me back to the promised land!
