The Gifts of a Day

Plein Air at Bear Lake
Had a lovely day yesterday that finished with a short painting session at Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.  I couldn't get that scene out of my mind from last week's visit.

Magpies and Elk
The elk are not bugling yet, but there are a few bulls starting to gather harems.  The magpies seem to be gathering into groups as well.  Though there are signs that autumn is coming, it seems to be a bit delayed this year.

Youngest son Zach always has a great sense of humor and had to give me his best "Irish" smile when trying on hats at the annual Scottish Festival in Estes Park!  We spent an enjoyable afternoon listening to music, eating (steak on a stick for Zach, Scotch Eggs for me and meat pies and Scottish Ale for both of us), watching the heavy armor joust, and wandering through booths of kitschy "celtic" stuff.

The best part of the day?  Spending it with my son!  Always priceless to spend time with family!

Oh, Lisa, I'm so happy for your having returned to your painting. You have so many interests and they all bring joy in the sharing. But the oil painting is exquisite. Thank you. Jan Myhre-Spokane

Zach looks like a great "kid"!

So glad to see you at your passion of painting. You're inspiring me to take a class. I don't think I'll be able to paint very well but perhaps I'll learn a lot about color and composition that would help with my embroidery....Your paintings are beautiful.
