My Grandmother bought a house in the Colorado mountains, and I started on a set of three paintings of natural things for her. It is her wish to decorate it only in things found around the house or pictures of the area. The pinecone came 1st, the the leaf, so of course I have been dillydallying on finishing the 3rd installment. I have only a sketch of an out line of an Aspen branch with a couple leaves that will be in the beautiful Aspen gold. The background is done in bright flaming reds and yellows. Grandma has had that place for 2 winters now. *sigh*

It is a breathtaking place.
