I’d be happy to send you a high resolution picture of this piece. Then you can really zoom into the details! Just send me a note here.
This was where we used to live in Steamboat, Colorado. This painting started with a rainy ATV ride. My two boys walked in the rain giving me 15 minutes to set up and paint. It was 40 degrees in early May, which is still Spring in the Rocky Mountains. When we got home we made guacamole and had chips by the fireplace.
That sloppy and wet little study gave me enough to paint this larger piece “Rainy Walk”. This path is something I’ve painted before in winter in a piece titled “Leaning Douglas” (which you can find in my shop). But in Spring, you can see those vibrant green aspen beginning to bud. And can you find the little scraps of unmelted snow? I placed them near the figures to highlight those two boys together.
