Telluride Morning

I jumped on the chance to visit Telluride, CO, last summer for a landscape workshop with Deborah Paris.  We drew every day, all day, from sunrise to sunset, breathing in the trees, mountains and very thin air.  One morning I met up with a couple of art buddies to draw the sunrise in the Telluride Valley.  It was interesting to observe how the sage brush and desert loving plants grow just above and right down to the edge of the fertile, green ponds and streams in the valley floor.  This painting, Telluride Morning, is about that edge where the dry meets the wet.
