It's actually 10,000 ft. looking down on Boulder Mt.
In the distance is some of the Grand Staircase, Escalante.
I was really drawn to the pure white of the snow
contrasting with the dark pines and the distant
mountains and valley's.

Watercolor on 140lb arches.  @ 8 x 10

I have been away from your site too long!!! Really looking forward to perusing and seeing the sites you saw. This watercolor is fabulous. The strokes for the tree limbs and the evergreens and those across the breadth of the sky and the snow... Talk about confidence! I'm so happy to see your work again. Thanks for coming over....
