Hubby Travis biked and I painted yesterday just outside of Redlands CA. While Travis rode 100 miles around Big Bear, I found a couple spots that appealed. The first, over the valley through some hills with two lone pine trees. It was early morning – sun was still below the mountains. No sooner did I get set up, than “boing” up popped the sun – right on my back! Pretty bright on the canvas. I wasn’t there long! Second spot was a bit down the hill. I loved the patterns the darks and bright yellows made. Then, to top it off, a bunch of bikers rode by – so of course, I had to put one in. Think these need work!
