Quarry Steps

Met some artist friends at the Quarry near Penninsula. This was the scene I chose, because the morning light and shadow caught my eye.

Field of Drooping Sunflowers

Some of the farms not far from us grow sunflowers. I had scouted this out before we left, but they were not yet open. When we returned they were over done. So I painted it anyway. Perhaps next year I can be there at the right time.

Where the Buffalo Roam

Another Painting in Yellowstone National Park. I did not put the buffalo in the painting, but they were there and one roamed close enough to where we were that I jumped into the car. My sister and I pulled off the road and spent one afternoon painting this valley. Cars and people were milling about, driving slowly by taking photos of the buffalo. One man pulled up in a pickup truck and played a lovely rendition of "Home on the Range" on his harmonica.

Old Faithful

Two weeks ago we traveled west to camp with our nephew and his family at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. There were 11 of us and we had a wonderful time together. It was a joy to be together and to exlperience one more vast expanse of God's handiwork.
