|Mt. Bachelor Summit|
12 x 9
It's a beautiful sunny (though not particularly warm) day at Mt. Bachelor. We are here at 10 AM because my husband insisted that this was the best day for skiing during our 3-night stay. Thus we got up at 5:30, something I never do except for sacred Hawaiian sunrise painting, and drove straight to the mountain.
Since my knee and back have left me grounded, I am taking the opportunity to paint a snow scene. From my location amid the sea of cars I have a lovely view of the peak, which I give you here.
Really, I should have taken a photo of my setup: it's much more entertaining. I didn't feel like standing out in the wind to paint, or setting up my easel, and the van is full of our luggage....so.... the 48-inch baking sheet palette gets the driver's seat. I sit in the passenger seat, with my tissue hanging from the sun visor, the 9 x 12 canvas in my hand, and brushes upended in the open glove box. Laziness, ever the mother of invention.
