Tetons







Well I made it to the Tetons. What a magnificent place to do some plein air painting. There is something to paint at every turn of the head. I am not sure I can do it justice. It is quite humbling just to be here. I spent the day yesterday scouting some possible locations and snapping some pictures for possible studio works.

I woke up this morning to a temperature of 32 degrees. Brrrrrr......... When I left Phoenix it was 85 degrees at night. I brought along an extra quilt but didn't think I would need it last night. I know better now. Today marks the first day of boot camp. I am a little nervous. I get a little uptight at these workshops. I told Melissa yesterday that I just don't want to look stupid. It is kind of rediculous, if I already knew everything I wouldn't need to be here.

Hi Les, You sure have some wonderful scenery to work. Your work on WC is awesome so don't sweat the workshop at all.

I forgot what that white stuff looked like. I think that may be a good thing.

This is God's country. I felt really lucky to have the priviledge of learning from someone of Scott's caliber.

I appreciated your words of encouragement Ron. It felt like my eyes were going to cross at times because of all there was to look at.
