I just got back from painting near my house this morning and I ask myself, am I still in Tennessee? Obviously I’m not, because of the incredible Rocky Mountains and all, but we all need something to complain about… The pollen from the cottonwoods blowing through the air looks like it’s snowing and I’m just barely going through the motions, half awake, when the phone rings and a friend from Tennessee tells me that the humidity is low and it’s perfect weather for painting. Then I’m reminded that It’s rained constantly here for the past month… Didn’t I come here to escape this?...Maybe I brought the weather with me?..... but then I’m reminded of how amazing it was when I drove up to Mayflower Gulch near Leadville the other day, and who know’s, todays painting may even turn out OK.
