Missing the Mountains

"Mountain Memories," 5 x 7 watercolor greeting card

 
I miss the mountains, even though it's only been a month since we were in Colorado.

I remember autumn and holiday trips there years ago, in Northern New Mexico, when early snow mixed with the golden colors of Aspen and Cottonwoods.

Alas, there won't be such a trip the rest of this year, but I can go there every time I pick up a paint brush, especially as I take my traditional journey with holiday greeting cards.
