The Sierras

This was the perfect weekend. We didn't have any chores or anything else to worry about, so we spent all weekend at home doing the things we love and watching Star Trek. I enjoyed another day of painting, and today I did a few original pieces. I am trying to get enough paintings done to create a portfolio for my Silicon Valley Open Studios submission. 

The following painting is from a picture I took in the Sierras during our stay there this past Thanksgiving.  I considered the reference in big shapes, made some color swatches before starting work on the final piece and then it was go time.
