This was finished just today, inside from a few photo's I took last November, 2010- Its on the ranch on Foothill Road, as you go up the hillside. We have the rabbit Brush which each year blooms pretty loudly! In 'o9 it was blooming pretty wildly when Lorenzo Chavez had his workshop in Hope Valley, and actually painted one day here at the ranch because it was so cold in Hope Valley that fall. This time, tho, there was snow on the ground, and as the sun was going behind the mountain long shadows were forming. Interesting color and design I thought- - - -so I painted them for you!
This is 11 x 14 Sennelier Pastel Card, in a warm sand color- - -using turpinoid for a underpainting.
