"Canyon Shadows" © #GrandCanyonpainting #laurawambsgans

We watched a summer storm break up after drops the size of nickels brought all the colors of the stone cliffs to a brilliance, unknown in the usual dry desert air.  The play of the sunlight sneaking under and over the clouds created it's own drama that demanded reverence.

"Sierra Snow" © #snowpainting #landscape #laurawambsgans

Painting for fall shows, while the temperature gauge is inching into the mid-90's is twisting my paint brush into a knot.  Not really, but it is very strange to be channeling the crisp mountain air and the crunching sound your boots make stepping onto the night hardened snow, while the ravens sit on the outside wall panting in the summer heat.   This painting is another piece for my exhibit at The Lake House in Arrowhead, CA.

"A Country Road Home" © #aspens #landscapeoilpainting #ontheeasel #laurawambsgans

At the end of August I will be exhibiting new works at The Lake House in Lake Arrowhead, California.  Over the next several weeks I will be happily chained to my studio easel painting scenes for this high altitude loving crowd.  Aspens seemed like a good subject to start off painting for the exhibit.
