Another view of the Pit River

Spent another couple of days up at the Pit River. I thought I'd try another view using stronger colors this time. I really liked the purple for the deep shadows on the ground.
Will be traveling again today and I won't have inter net for a couple of days so won't be commenting on anyones art or posting anything but I will be painting.

Summer Storm Brewing

No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth; but I haven't had inter net access for several weeks either.
I painted this early in the morning int he high plains desert of Eastern Oregon a few mornings ago. There was a summer storm moving in and the lighting cause the darkness on the hill in the foreground. The contrast with that against the bright green of the grass along the reservoir caught my attention.
