Autumn in The Osage

Gate in the Osage Hills

9 by 12 Plein Aire watercolor on 300 # paper

I painted the start of this on Okesa road east of Pawhuska in the Osage nation yesterday, before rain moved in. It's wild and free.

Susan and I were in Pawhuska at a bed and Breakfast for fall break. What a scenic corner of Oklahoma. Even more special since we've seen the award winning play, August in he Osage.

Photos to come soon.
