"Placerita Canyon Evening" © #santaclarita #landscape #laurawambsgans

With a little rain, spring greens are popping up in the canyon.  After so many months of muted gray brush the bright green is almost shocking and clearly a delight for all living things.

This spot is one of those hidden gems you find hiking along the trail.  Not a soul around,  just a few birds bidding the day goodbye, tiny flying wings skimming the surface of the creek and an occasional ripple from the trout cruising for dinner.

"Teton Morning" © #Tetons #landscapeoilpainting #wambsgans

Grand Tetons early in the morning, what could be more grand?  A FB friend Gary Keimig, another painter, generously allowed me to paint this from his photograph.  I saw the image and knew what the painting would look like before I started.  Fortunately I have painted on location many times all around the Tetons, from both sides of the range and know the landscape very well, which always helps when working from a digital image.
