While much of the country is having a drought, especially California, here in Colorado we've had more rain this summer than in the last 20 years.  Every thing so so green and there are wildflowers every where!!  The last 3 weeks we've had fields of the most amazing, tiny sunflowers.  In years past the meadows were a beautiful yellow ochre.  Right now when you look at a field while squinting, you see nothing but yellow.

This is a recent plein air piece done in Bear Creek Park, right next to our house.  I went down several mornings with my coffee and paints.  We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful location!

Hi Pam, It's a lovely painting. I can imagine all those flowers as a sea of yellow. Here in Pennsylvania we have goldenrod and it has already started to bloom. Once in a while I have seen what you just described, but on a smaller scale.
How nice to live beside such a nice park.

Thank you Pattie. Not sure that I'd want to paint such a sea of goldenrod, might cause me allergy problems!! But, from a afar it would be beautiful!
