My Dayton Friend comes to paint in Carson Valley
This is Carole, painting away beside our hay stack which is a long row and you can see its shadow---it gave us some great shade, and protection from the wind last Sunday as we painted. I was out to her area of Nevada a few weeks ago, Dayton, so this time she came this way. I really enjoyed seeing her part of the country and want to go back again. She was very interstested in painting the blooming rabbit brush while on this day I was more concerened with the distant mountains that are north of us, and toward Carson City. They are plenty high, and have quite a bit of drama. Maybe not as much as the Tetons, but plenty! Glenna Hartman ( bless her), painted a very nice scene a few years ago, along this same range of mountains , just before Genoa, Nev. that is just beautiful. Todays try was on Canson, twilight in color, which is a great shade of purple that really is fun to use. Its 9 x 11, and the pastel does not fill the tooth, I could do more , but I think I will leave it simple.
It has the feeling of wide open spaces! Those are getting few and far between , even in my world. Have to enjoy them as we can.
