I finally closed the boxes and made the drive to my happy spot on this planet last week. Crested Butte, Colorado was blazing with full sun and not a drop of moisture for almost 7 days but still welcomed me with cool breezes and amazing vistas. My "sacred perch" looks over the valley...and today we celebrated rain!!! Amazing. I am playing with painting clouds to prepare for one of the Simple Sketch classes I'll be teaching in July (focus on clouds) so today was perfect. I am trying to keep things really simple with a limited palette, working in a watercolor Handbook. After a few more cloud challenges I'll move on to mountain scenes, trees, flowers and all other things Crested Butte (architecture as well). If you are interested in getting to the coolest air in the US please join me up here! Info and links on my workshop page.
