It’s been hot.
I now live in the basement. Hopefully this will be the heat peak of the summer. Relief supposed to arrive in a few days.
I’m trying to stay with my commitment to flex my landscape muscles, and do more landscape paintings. When I go out hiking in the foothills and mountains in Colorado (higher altitude = cooler temperatures!), I’m so enamored with what I see; I just have to find a way to put that in paint.
Although I’m not overwhelmed with the results of these little paintings, there’s aspects that get more attractive to me each time. On this one (and if you click on the picture then click again, you can see it a little closer up) I started with a reddish purple underpainting. Still peaks through in some places, and I like that. With each painting, I learn more. (what a concept!)
Wherever you are, stay cool. (both chilled and hip)
