This was my completed quick-draw Gouache Watercolor Painting
It is the view of the lake from the Dining Room that sits on a rock face looking out over the lake, Arrow and Middle Mountain and several glaciers that can be seen on the horizon. It is a view to die for. The base of the cliff contains numerous Indian Petroglyphs nearly a thousand years old. The ranch has quite a horse program and many were sitting a little gingerly watching the quick-draw as they had just arrived from the saddle into the cabin for my 45 minute painting. What fun we had. The painting after a scrumptious dinner acutioned off for $500.00. I give the ranch half.
Our weather has turned cold again and I was sure wishing for a fire in the cabin we held our event in. At 49 degrees everyone was dressed pretty warm. Snow will be falling in the higher country tonight. Chances of rain snow mix in town. Ahh. Life in the high country.
