And here we are in the Rocky Mountains. We are still fighting off colds and coughs, so after trying a few short trails this morning we took it easy today. For me, that meant sitting in the backyard, painting the Fall River. I’m also posting a quick painting I did two days ago outside our hotel in Custer State Park. I keep reminding myself – simple, basic shapes! But I struggle to put it into practice. And why is green so hard?
