Mountains and Fields of White Wildflowers

1/8 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

Yep, I am enjoying these mountain scenes! And the dream of wildflowers in their fields ....This was painted with contrasts in mind - particularly the blue/purple against the greens and yellows. The sky is light blue and my scanner couldn't quite pick up the subtleties -- but the sky is there! LOL

The promised busy week is definitely here with a night meetings, classes and public visitors ... The rain kept yesterday grey and cool, and snow (a trace to one inch) is still in the forecast for later this week -- but the weekend temps are expected to rise to 60F!! My gracious -- such fluctuations!

Off to prepare for my next meeting -- have a great day!

Lovely scene Lin. I like the sweeping lines and curves and the new color schemes and contrast. I love the trees and especially how you've placed one at the very left edge.
Big hugs,
Lorraine
