Alpine Meadow Shadows
16 x 12

August 2, Pacific Northwest Plein Air, Day 3

I talk a few other people into returning to the alpine meadow with me: Kat Sowa, Za Vue, Brenda Boylan.  We tromp through the bushes together.  Some are delighted with the mountain, others with the stream.  It is later in the afternoon and the shadows are longer. I paint the same scene with a different composition.

Karen Whitworth arrives just as we are finishing.  We sit down on the roadside together, captivated by the same stand of trees.  Our paintings turn out completely different.
