This is a recent plein-air study I did along the West Carson River in the mid-morning. It sure has been hot, and I wanted to be outdoors, where it was cool. I helped load cattle for a trip to the sale. After that, I grabbed my painting stuff and headed for Hope Valley where I spent a lovely two hours just looking at water. As the sun moved across above me, more and more rocks under the water became visible------time to stop!! The green bushes on the far bank reflected such " greeness" onto the surface, and as the water is low this year, it was moving slow. Still, a nice way to get out of the heat, and do some rock studies. 9 x 12 on Uart, turpinoid under painting-----Hope you all are painting!
