At 8000 feet snow stays way past spring time. The warmth in the sun is deceptive.I decided I liked this composition. I was in the shade and it took two hours to paint it because I had to take breaks and warm up in the sunshine every time my hands got too cold to hold a brush. Gloves, you say. Gloves! I don't need no stinkin' gloves.


  1. I love the pinkish freshness of this painting, as it appears on the computer,anyway. You've portrayed the icy brightness of the landscape so well.

    I live in Estes Park so know the landscape and enjoy your portrayal.

  2. Vickie,

    I underpainted the canvas in red, giving it a pinkish undertone.
