Title: Streams Sing
Artist: Tracy HainesMedium: Pastel on Wallis professional sanded paper mounted to foam core.
This is one of many plein air pieces I did on a trip back to Crested Butte, Colorado earlier this July. The scenes everywhere were simply show-stopping. It was the week of the wildflower festival. This year the color purple seemed to dominate over the yellow we saw in abundance last year. I loved the way the beautiful cerulean-cobalt blue stream cut and zigzagged through the summer-green, flower- laden fields. The purple mountains in the back set the scene off nicely.
