I love the grey days we have been having in North Texas lately, the atmosphere has a quiet quality. As I have been running around the last few days, I have been color mixing in my head…dappled yellow and gold foliage against a warm grey sky. I haven’t gotten out to paint it yet, wet weather is tricky with pastels in plein air, perhaps next week. In the meantime I went through my photos, this one is from Cloudcroft New Mexico, it was late summer and the trees were green, but the wildflowers and overcast sky satisfied my immediate desire to paint yellow and grey.

  1. As usual, your roads make me want to follow them to wherever they lead! This picture has so many things that attract my eye – the clouds/mist, the yellow/gray contrast, the pine trees that look so real, the kids who look like they are flying on their bikes, the colors of the flowers, the “wildness” of all of the vegetation. I love it.
