This is a morning painting of the Absarokas with the Yellowstone River in the foreground. This was another hour to hour and a half painting. These are just quick studies, not finished pieces. There are several things that need to be fixed, but I do like the color of the mountains backlit. There were fires in the area so everything was slightly hazy. This place has a special place in my heart since I woke to those mountains every morning for five years, I still consider it home.
