Ride n Paint!

Today was a warm, calm day.  Such a treat!  I took Casey to Washoe Lake for a gentle ride (he is a little pudgy from the winter off) and let him hang out in the newly installed pipe corals.  This equestrian park is so nice!  Lots of groups come here for endurance races or just group rides.  They have been making upgrades to the picnic area with new fire pits and barbeques. 

I sat in the picnic area and did a little pastel field study of Slide Mountain.  That patch of blue is Washoe Lake peeking out between the sand dunes.  Just a little one-hour sketch (on that paper I still don't like) on a nice relaxing day.
