sold. (8x10in.)

This is my first painting (that turned out) from our trip up into the Sierra Nevada mountains last week. There was a little waterfall just to the left and I tried painting that first, but it was a disaster. Despite that, and a few other failures, there were no major disasters, and we all had a wonderful time!

I did see two bears: one from the car driving in, and the other in our camp a couple of evenings, keen on getting our food. Fortunately he ran away when we yelled at him. He did manage to snag some instant coffee and a couple of days later we found a big sludgy pile of bear poop near camp. Poor guy must have had indigestion!

I appreciate the warm color just below the water line. Oil paint eh?

Hmmm. Instant coffee. Might have to stay away from that stuff!

Bears ruin everything.
