Here are 2 more gouaches. The top one is from Blodgett overlook again, south of Missoula, a different view this time.
The bottom one is from the Sierra Nevadas. It's from a photo but I have a wonderful memory of the moment I took it. I had just spent most of the day way up above the lake (and camp) painting by myself, and as I was hiking back, completely satisfied, a smile plastered to my face, the sun low on the horizon, I was stopped in my tracks by this scene. I didn't have time to paint it, so I snapped a few pictures and carried on my way, just in time to enjoy some wine (and dinner I guess) with my paintings buds. Life is good.
