Lost Canyon

Lost Canyon, 16 x 12

Today was a beautiful, blue sky day with cooler temperatures after our weekend rain - perfect for painting. I met up with my dear friend and great painter, Julie Davis, at a wonderful canyon land that runs through town. This path leads to some beautiful sunning rocks in Lost Creek - a popular hangout spot for the teenagers at this time of year.

My first reaction is complete excitement! How long did you stay after I left?! This is gorgeous--you really captured the moment. I'm completely humbled, as usual, but really--fantastic. And thanks for the shout-out. :)

I posted this on Julie's blog too but I am so jealous you two got to paint together today! I am inspired by both of your works from today and wish I could've been there to learn from you both. Awesome painting!

Love the subtle color along the back wall in this painting. I was thinking - how did she do that? This painting is fresh and beautiful!

Hi Laurel,

Every time I go to your blog I see the latest picture and say "Oh wow!"
You are so amazingly, overwhelmingly,
good -- in a class by yourself called
perfect. Love this painting.

XOXOXOBarbara
