Dancing Light

Dancing Light
Oil 6" x 8"
$100.00 + $10. s/h

The week before last was a fun week.  A friend or ours from high school came for a visit (actually, she and my husband go all the way back to the same grade school.)  After a few days here in Colorado Springs, we headed over the the western slope (for those of you who don't live in Colorado, that means on the other side of the continental divide) to her in-laws ranch.  It was a great visit!  I got to meet Chief, who I painted in January.  Click here to go to the painting of Chief.  I also got to meet the young couple who own the painting.  That was really nice.

While on the ranch my husband and our friend went fishing and I painted by the side of the creek.  I loved the way the reflections, light and ripples seemed to dance across the water.


This is the view from where I painted.


I took a break and turned my easel around to critique the painting from my resting spot.


Here are the happy fishermen!

Great title- your really captured the dancing light. This is a true impressionist jewel.
( where is half way - Santa Fe or Raton?)

Sounds like so much fun! I like the extreme range in values you fit in the water.

Celeste, thank you. Traveling, fishing and painting all lend themselves together!

Thank you Julie. It is just a little bit of an impression! I'll check half way, but a trip to Santa Fe would be more fun!

Sherry, Thanks so much. It was a beautiful spot.

Hilda, It wasn't a beautiful blue sky day, which really showed so many more colors. Thank you!

Thank you Natalie.
