Finding Our Roots- and Some Nice Views

Thursday morning 7 painters met at the site of Wayside, about a mile North of town. This little cabin is about all that is left of the original supply and ferry settlement, by the river, that predated the founding of Alamosa. Margaret Jones hosted our morning on this historic property where the great grand parents of Lloyd Jones (Margaret's late husband) raised 7 kids - yes, in that little cabin.
My painting is at the bottom - not that there is much to it. . . .
All I had was a 4 1/2"x 6" panel because I could not get to my studio - the road was being repaved. Very annoying!
Fortunately, there were a couple of small panels in my kit, but painting this small is not my favorite thing; I consider it a discipline for sure!
The day was a beautiful one tho'; sunny in the morning, giving us a chance to lay in strong shadow patterns, then we got a nice cloud cover that kept us cool.
