Sunday Aspens and a Few Drawings

Afternoon sunlight on snow
shadows of aspens

Three drawings in the aspen forest

I return to Horsefly Mesa all winter to draw and paint the aspen trees.
I cannot find the reason why this particular stand of aspens are not white. 
They are a variety of tan, ecru and the gray of dead branches.
My on-site paintings capture the scene, light, patterns, shapes,
the drawings are more playful and allow me to find or create shapes
that are more abstracted and take on a life of their own.
