This scene depicts the landscape near my camp site the morning following a torrential downpour. All of the stream channels had just stopped flowing and a thick fog had developed across the valley. The temperature was not cold and after a short walk I could not resist trying to capture the moment in paint. This is a unique artwork, painted entirely outdoors alla prima on location.
Oil paint on gessoed masonite
