Wandering Meadow

This is another painting that I did earlier this summer in Bear Creek Park.  I love this park!  Our house sits right next to it and I've walked it's paths thousands of times over the years.  I've painted dozens of pictures of different parts of it (it's 670 acres) in all seasons.  This summer we've had way more rain than normal and the park has been spectacular!  Gorgeous colors of the grasses, wild flowers, even the weeds seem beautiful when they're green!  

The lavender in the painting is what we call cheat grass.  I'm sure that it has a biological, or scientific name, but I don't know what that is.  It's since changed colors and now is more amber.  Earlier the shades of lavender and purple were spectacular!  Of course, now on breezy days we have....you guessed it...."amber waves of grain!!"  Katherine Lee Bates wrote the song after she'd visited Colorado Springs!!
