Mountain Time

Mountain Time, 8 x 10 watercolor, 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper
Happy? What makes me happy? Mountains. Big skies. Autumn. Cabins. Woodsmoke.
You may leave the mountains, but they never leave you. Grow up in New Mexico, or the West...you just know.
On a gray day like today, or on any day for that matter, we need more color in our lives. Mountains do that for me, in my imagination, my memory, or in person. Mountain time.
Today's watercolor--makes you want to go there, doesn't it?
