Plein Air Artists Colorado - San Luis Valley

Here we all are - IN the landscape. David is working on the piece that ended up going to the PAAC Show; painted in the Zapata Ranch area in early February.
Sue and I went to Rock Creek Colorado to paint in February and below is the piece that she will show in the PAAC Show. The last photo was taken by Dave up on LaVeta Pass in January; a windy day and very cold.
Painting in the Winter can be testing for plein air artists but the work has an immediacy that I like. On the other hand, these photos remind me of how short our summers are and how much I want to hang on to every beautiful day and make the most of it.
Just last night a group of us painted out east of town, over looking the marsh with a knock out view of Blanca at last light (more about that later).
The evening breezes were actually warm. Oh, so fine.
Warm or cold - Any day painting out is a good day!
