I forgot to publish this yesterday. I visited with Jack in his home on the Salmon River and painted the beautiful view from his kitchen window . The green above the bank are spruce boughs which will be used to help stabilize the eroding banks.

I've been having a hard time getting on the internet lately, so behind on getting things posted.
The first postcard is was from the upstairs window yesterday. Here is from the same window in February. we planted the golden willow a long time ago and they've been slow to get much size because the moose trim them every year.
I painted this from my studio window this morning. The lavender flowers are primroses that are past their prime and the tulips are just coming into color. I really should have thought more about my composition before I started. I went out in the wind and rain and cut some to bring in the house. Maybe I'll paint the tomorrow.
This was painted last Wednesday except for the bridge, which I finished yesterday. The cottonwoods are greener today. Here is a view I painted last month from a little farther up the river.

I went to the beach yesterday, set in the sun, and painted. This is Mount Bertha, part of Crillion on the left. I started with water soluble crayons on Nidiggen paper then used gouache.
This is Mt. Fairweather, sort of. I had a hard time seeing the contour with the haze around, or maybe I just need new glasses. And as I was in the sun (the only way to stay warm enough) the paint dried too fast and unevenly in the sky.

Most of this got painted on Monday before a little rain shower stopped my progress. I went back Tuesday and the same thing happened and I finished it at home.
It is our city hall. The building was once part of a church camp and was moved to this site where it served as our library and later the center for the community association. It became our city hall after our town became incorporated in 2004.

I've had some problem getting on the internet last couple of days, so behind posting. I had to come to my neighbor's house this morning.
I really want to just paint from direct observation on this blog, but I've been lacking enthusiasm for the same old colors outside and the rain keeping me inside. So, I've been painting from photos. This is of Reid Glacier.
