I was drawn to the water in this image and the simplicity of the shapes, their almost surreal appearance.

I got out of the city last week.   Drove through the mountains to a high valley and stayed in a cabin on the Arkansas River.   It was chilly and crisp, the cottonwoods were all yellow and gold and wild turkeys strolled through each morning and evening.   Enjoyed the hot springs nearby and slept the afternoon away.   It was just what was needed, beauty and the peace of nature.

I laid the bones for this painting one cold morning, working under the dappled light of the pine trees until I was chilled through and through; a good lesson on dressing for autumn Colorado mountain weather.
