A little break from my virtual ramble through Yellowstone, this one is a REAL plein air! I love the willow and cottonwood filled marshes that surround the Yakima River Delta, where this was painted.

  1. Ooo! I love this one! So simple and serene; absolutely beautiful! Plein airs are almost always my favorite. They usually have a raw life to them that's so real. Great!

    1. Thanks, Carolyn! That's the one good thing to come out of the cold winter weather we've had - the beautiful atmosphere.
