I painted this a few weeks ago after returning from our trip to the mountains. We stopped at an overlook on Pilot Mountain to view the valley below. I painted this view on masa paper to give the painting additional textures.
The week will be cool with rain in the forecast. We've begun working on collecting natural materials to decorate one of the trees in the town's Festival of Trees. We wanted to capture the materials before the cold and rains beat them into nonuse.
