Cascade Mountain and Spring Greens

12" x 16" Oil on Panel
Trees haven't leafed out yet as much as I'd like for plein air painting, but I can't wait. Heber Valley was the location for this painting. The day began with clear blue skies, then clouds developed as I was blocking in the main shapes of the painting. The clouds largely disappeared from the scene as I painted, but not before I was able to get their impression onto the panel. Storm clouds formed over the mountains behind me, but kindly stayed away from me and the scene I was painting. All in all, a great day to be out painting!

Happy Earth Day!

Very nice painting James, I wish I could have been out today.

Thanks, David. I don't always get out when I want, but I always do my best to get out when I can. (Did that make any sense?)
