Got up Saturday to a picture perfect morning, so I rode out to La Canada Road and Crystal Springs to find a spot to paint. This scene shows me facing the sun (not easy to paint in that light). I’ve always likes the effect of backlighting. I think I’ll bring this to the Vault Gallery pre-show for the May 5 reception of Gold Country Plein Air (unless someone reading this blog wants to snap it up!).
