This is a small piece I did early in the morning. The early morning light was hitting the mountain behind the trees giving it a golden color while the trees and valley floor were still in shadow. I was fascinated by the color combination and reflections in the water. This is one of my favorite spots along the Dolores river.
This is one out back of my studio. I love coming out during full moon with the rising or setting of the moon and try to catch the beautiful colors. I have painted this hill many times but I think this one is the best so far.
