June 24 - Monument Park Russian Olive

"Russian Olive in Monument Park" On location to paint the view to the Colorado Rockies from the creek that runs north/south through Colorado Springs. While my two friends went walking, I plunked down and plugged in the Ipod to hear "The DaVinci Code" and painted this 12 x 16 oil. the Russian olive trees are a beautiful smoke gray, like smoke trees in my familiar California desert. I love their contrast against the greens. And of course the sound of trickling water isn't too shabby! SOLD
