Recent paint-outs

6 x 6 plein air at Eagle Falls, Lake Tahoe
I recently hiked up to Eagle Falls and painted this little painting.  I only went 1/3 mile, but it was straight up and many granite steps and stairs to climb.  This was the vista point - a view I chose that did not peek at Emerald Bay below.  If I continued another 2/3 mile I could have seen Eagle Lake.  I've seen photos of it on the internet and it looks gorgeous!  Want to go someday!

6 x 6 plein air of Silver Saddle Ranch
Yesterday I painted at Silver Saddle Ranch.  I stood in the shade of the cottonwood trees and painted this view looking toward Carson River.  The cattle were not in the pasture.  They were off somewhere across the street.

Carolyn, hello, my friend!
Beautiful esmerald and blu mountains and this lonely withered tree :) And, of course, this old Big tree, pink clouds in the sky!
I can imagine mountaines more now, when visited at first in my life green mountains, here in Ukraine, they looks like some from your photoes :)
I was thinking about you all time!

And, wonderful photoes on the blog "Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters" - you are amazing, friends! And your nature.
