Highrock Spring

Highrock on a warm and sunny spring afternoon
 is a beautiful thing. 
The Camas lily's that have a moist
spot are in full bloom now, those in 
the drier areas are already finished. 
Much of the winter mosses are
drying out leaving carpets of gold and
orange that have been green 
since early last fall.
The oaks are leafing out now.
An artist friend and I spent a couple of hours
painting there on Thursday afternoon.
It is so wonderful getting out again!

"On all of our camping and sketching trips
 we learned to explore each region 
for those particular areas where form and
character and spirit reached its summation.
We became increasingly conscious of the fact 
that the spirit of the land
must be discovered through its own character
 if there is to be any real life in its art."

(Lawren Harris...from The Story of the Group of Seven)

I can feel the beautiful day, Jeffery!
Your paintings remind me of Van Gogh.
Your color harmonies are smashing.

Yes, I agree with Mary! You easily capture the moment and feel of warmth and spring. Glad you're out and about and not in and "ka-put"!
