I have been out for a while. My son just graduated from high school and I had quite a few family members come to visit for the occasion. I had to spend a good deal of time just cleaning before they came, and recoup after, but it was well worth it to see everyone. I truly enjoyed having them here.
I went out painting yesterday, up in the mountains with friend Veryl. It was a glorious day and we wasted none of it. This is up at the base of Helmet Peak in the LaPlata mountains. I was looking for something fun to paint, when I turned around I noticed the moon hanging beautifully among the trees. I knew this was just what I was looking for.
