This is the last painting I did before I headed home. As the sun dropped lower it was getting cold. I was finishing painting the white pines when I looked to my right . The sun was dropping behind the ridge and the clouds were lighting up. The colors were changing every few minutes. It was amazing. I hadn’t planned on painting another one but couldn’t stop now. This was gorgeous. The bottom of the cloud deck was lighting up and changing from red to orange to pink non stop. The dark pines on the hill were providing the perfect contrast to the violet snow. It was beautiful.
