Aspen in Yellowstone
I love that it is only 8:30 AM and I have this painting done and posted, and have another half done. For some reason it is so much easier to jump out of bed early on weekends than during the week. On with the day!
This is a scene from Yellowstone. I was in Wyoming a couple years ago to paint with a group and afterwards I took a drive through the northern end of YS before heading up to Red Lodge for a couple days. I remember this stretch of road exactly, through this beautiful open valley, mountains on either side and there was this golden stand of Aspens against all the blues of the mountains. I love how two years later I can put myself back there and remember the details of the moment. This is one of my favorite places. Very magical to me.
And.....this time next week I will be there again! Out to Utah to see my daughter and then we're heading up to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone for a couple days. No painting this time but lots of pictures.
Krista...you're gonna love this place!
