"Spring" 8 x 10" acrylic study
A few years ago, I went camping with a friend in Southwest Colorado.
It rained every day. Looking back at photographs, it's funny now. Pics of me in a poncho, wrapped in a blanket. Pics of us both trying to find dry wood. Pics of my heavy wool sweater hanging on the clothes line, in the pouring rain.
Despite the rain, we had a great time...an adventure of sorts.
The upside of the rain was that the forest was alive with spring growth...flowers, grass, and healthy trees. In the mornings the fog made our campground into a magical place, even if it was cold and wet.
This study is from a watercolor sketch made early one morning.
