gouache 4"x4"
This old cottonwood has been seen on this blog before.  It's outside my studio window.  There are some large spruce behind it that I left out.

I am giving away a small painting on my other blog to celebrate my 100th post there, so if you are interested, go over there by clicking here.

This is most likely my last plein air painting for the year, done on one of our rare nice days in October ( the 12th).   It was quite cold.

 On the 28th, I did this and the next one from the car.  It was raining off and on, the sky changing faster than I could paint it...

and the sun coming out for a while.   I took a walk to the river and there was a gorgeous rainbow over town.  I'm glad I took advantage of a rare day with some sun.
