remote, beautiful views at every turn. Now my second trip, I am energized by Gateway. It is so inspiring. I cannot believe that someone has dropped me into this canyon – and I get to paint whatever hits me. I have offered the property right of first refusal on the sketches that I paint on these research trips. TAG has indicated that he wants them all. Needless to say, that adds to the excitement each time you set up to paint. Like Taos or Santa Fe, this could be a significant place for artists to pour out “the love” of painting from life. Aimee has gone back and I have stayed on to paint the old school house.
Great subject with Autumn stand of trees, but, I like this view but I will loose the lighting. So I will paint something with some red rocks in background.
