Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Mountain Landscape Painting, 6x8" Oil, "High in the Sky"

If you live in Colorado, you probably don't consider 6,000+ feet as high in the sky.  That is the altitude of Water Rock Knob, North Carolina, which is depicted in this daily painting

I returned from a week touring Colorado.  It is incredibly beautiful and wild.  Where else can you go to see a herd of antelope grazing, or big horn sheep!  The prairie is as gorgeous as the mountains.  I wasn't expecting the beauty of rolling hills, of mother deer with their fawns walking through the waist high grasses.

But this painting is from a kinder, gentler mountain.  What is high in the Blue Ridge is a starting point in the Rockies!  I love both places.  Being a flatlander, I feel blessed to be able to visit these stunning landscapes.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Bonjour chère amie,

Je sens en lisant vos mots et en admirant cette magnifique peinture que vous avez été éblouie par les paysages du Colorado.
J'aime l'ensemble des couleurs et la manière authentique que vous avez su capturer l'immensité et le côté sauvage de ce lieu.
Bravo !

Gros bisous ☼

You really get the feeling that you are high up from this painting, not an easy feat to do. Lovely painting.
