The grasses in the valley are so pale and dry they look almost white. As the sun starts to set the mountain sides are shadowed. The contrast is amazing. I feel as if I am painting to find my way and most likely will continue painting small studies to use as a guide for the next step to follow. I feel good and totally frustrated all in one. I know that may not make sense because it does not to me either. All I know it has been, "A Painting Day".
