This is beautiful Katherine! I really enjoyed your post about your friends' painting week too!

Thanks, Ruth. I would enjoy painting with you one of these days when we're both not traveling away from home!

Love this one with its green contrasting triangular shape. Wonderful colors.

I love this. It is great how you painted the gorge, it has depth and it looks like you can really fall into it. I can only think of "liquid air" - I guess it means nothing but something to me.

Thank you, Debora. That green shape interested me a lot, too. Thanks for the comment!

Hi Karin! The colors create a depth in a surprising way. The Gorge is so beautiful and mysterious. I hope to paint it more this fall.
