The third day of our workshop we headed north for a spectacular view of the Boulder Mountains. I like to paint this view in different seasons. You can drive almost to the huge patches of trees on the face of the mountain (which I have done in the fall). They are aspen trees and are often orange, not yellow. Our open sage hills usually have a sprinkling of confir trees and red rock outcroppings. This area of Idaho is a high mountain desert..sage on the south facing slopes, conifers on the north sides. Tall cottonwoods grown along streams and rivers, as do willows and alder.

just dropping by to say that I'm really excited that you're writing again.also, your recent posts just got me to revisit my unfairly-ignored Jonathan Richman records, and so thanks for that as well. Cheers
