Camping and Plein Air Painting Weekend

8x6 Oil Aspen tree trunk study
Painting under the awning at camp

8x10 Oil Thomas Canyon Hike study - we didn't make it over ridge when my partners gave up on me.

My tired painting/hiking pals
After a long hike back to camp, a popsicle treat. Bailey pup was exhausted, not to mention my husband was too.

Painting my heart out!
8x10 Oil Thomas Canyon water study and my favorite of all the studies from the weekend
6x8 oil  old beaver pond area with a beautiful stand of aspens. I've tried painting this area so many times and believe me I'll be back there soon to try again. So many GREENS!
We had a wonderful weekend camping, hiking and of course painting this past weekend. Our puppy (Bailey) did beautiful with the change in lifestyle and having to be attached to the leash most of the time. She passed the test camping trip and we are looking forward to a week long camping trip to Wyoming in September.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day :-)

You accomplished some great paintings.. My favorite is the stream, but the aspens are very good too... Love the colors you chose, rather that all the greens.. Creative..Looks like everyone had fun..Ron and Bailey look like they are happy too....

GORGEOUS! There is a hint of fall (warm, yellows) in the aspens! Glad Bailey did so good and you guys had a great trip!
