"Summer Retreat" ©

This location is close to the backside of Aspen Colorado, in the town of Marble where I used to go to get marble from the Yule quarry and carve stone at the MARBLE/marble Symposiums for 16 years. The brochure for the symposium arrived in the mail and fond memories came flooding back. Painting a scene allowed me to remember all the good times in the mountains.

Oil on Canvas, 20" X 24"

Thanks Marian, I changed it up after posting, created better shapes in the clouds, gave rhythm to the trees on the other side of the lake and added light on the most distant mountain. It's a much better painting now. Oil paint is so forgiving, allowing changes so easily, as you know.
