8"x6" Oil on Canvas Panel
by Ruth Andre
I set my easel up on the back porch to paint the mountain to the north of our valley property. The mountain has a ribbon of evergreen trees nestled at the very top. As you descend down the mountain there are a few oaks and rock boulders. The land is mostly barren but is good crazing land for cattle and deer. It might be nice to paint a larger canvas and paint the view from the trees all the way down to the creek. The day was cool with gusts of wind but it felt good to be out painting in the quiet of the valley.
