On Saturday 9 were to come and paint "in the warm sun with the snow". After some fuss we were down to the usual suspects. Now, it was damp and windy and gray. They threw that in just to see who would sacrifice. We painted in a little valley hiding from the breeze for the morning paint. Randi chased the light change as an exercise. Interesting. Vic painted in silence three feet away from me.
Per the drill we went on to Pete's for a stunning lunch (coffee and a muffin). Then we headed back to the hills and found this. Vic mumbled "stop" and after an incident with the ditch we got out and painted individual versions of the mystery - all in blinding sun light.
