This is my newest painting "Lavender Mountain" painted over the past week. I am truly inspired by aspen trees and mountains since that is the view from my window. The colors of the mountains change daily according to the light. In the morning sunrise they are pink, on a foggy day they are dark green, and at sunset they are lavender. So beautiful. The light also reflects on the aspen trees. Today it is rain turning to snow with the top of Bergen Peak in a cloud. The meadow is gold, the trees are yellow, green and blue, Painters Pause Path is purple. I had a student in one of my painting classes who had never seen a purple path. They do exist. It is all in the painter's eye. You might think rocks are brown - I am seeing red, orange and yellow. That trees are green - I am seeing green, yellow, and orange. It all depends on the light and the atmosphere. Look outside and have some fun with what you are looking at. Let your imagination wander.
