Another beautiful day in Tahoe!  I spent the day in Blackwood Canyon, a favorite spot of mine in the Fall for the turning Aspens.  I painted two, but the first I’m not sure about, so I’ll hold for now.

  1. Hi Ed,

    There’s a beautiful calm austerity to this one. No brush mark seems un-necessary. It’s understated economy gives it strength.

    Maybe after all that swash buckling with palette knives, a pleasure to spread paint smoothly with a brush.


    • I love it, “swash buckling with palette knives” 🙂 I have been having too much fun, although I’m glad this week is over. I don’t like the pressure of plein air events/competitions. Back to regular pace for me.
