I was 6 feet under the weather yesterday. Unable to paint! Thank goodness the illness was short-lived. I sprung out of bed this morning, grabbed paints and headed out, braving the elements ( wind, cold and people staring) to paint this scene at Red Rocks. This painting was a struggle; at one point I wanted to do it serious violence ( like splash it with my turpentine!!!) but I finally felt like it was coming together. It's truly hit and miss with plein air- and often very frustrating!
