The last of Thornburg Peak

Last painting of Thornburg Peak
This is the final painting I have done for the Alpine County Garden Club.  They plan to give this as a gift to a lady whom is getting married, Lives in the Bay area, and had grown up here nearly under this peak.  Her last name is also Thornburg, as her family are old timers in the area.  I really hope she enjoys this painting, for me , it was a great project and oppertunity,.    It is on Moonstone Canson paper, and is 18 x 22, and was choosen out of 3 paintings I compeleted on different surfaces.  I was lucky, and got to take it to my framer and chose the matting and frame.  Not knowing where it will hang, I hope it all turns out!  This really was a nice experiance for me, and not at all expected!

third painting--grey day.

    I am the mother of the bride-to-be for whom the painting was made by Ida. Ida did a wonderful job - the painting is spectacular and just what we wanted. My daughter was thrilled, and she and her fiance now have it hanging in a very special place in their living room. This mountain was named for her great grandfather who was prominent in Alpine County in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
    Ida is a very talented artist and I feel proud to be her friend.
    Thank you, Ida!
