Just a couple weeks ago, My good pastel artist friend Carole Karsh drove out to our place from Dayton. Nev. Her and her puppy. Dude, walked with me and my painting partner, Ruby. We went North of the ranch toward views of Mt's and Bluff's, Sky and clouds. We carried our stuff in backpacks and were quite comfortable. It still hasn't stormed much here, and our scenes were quite Nevada Hi-dessert stuff. We spent a couple of nice hours painting different scenes that included this bluff. Depending on where you stood it seemed like a large world. Hope to keep this up thru out the winter months. Hope it snows.
