"Summer Aspen"

I just returned from a two week painting trip in Colorado...and also exhibited my work at 'Meet the Artist' in Breckenridge.

The weather cooperated with cool days, spectacular clouds and enough rain showers to rehydrate this parched Arizonan.

I painted this little piece plein air in front of my sister's house in Silverthorne. Unfortunately, the bark beetle has killed the majority of the lodge pole pines in the area - but the aspen are growing quickly to fill in the gaps. I love painting aspen - and could have spent the two weeks painting nothing but.

This painting is a 6" x 6" oil on Ampersand board.
