Fall Colors in Briceland

5"x 7"                     oil

We were at Beginnings in Briceland, CA this weekend to attend a (possibly) once-in-a-lifetime congregation to honor pioneers of the solar industry (my husband Charlie being one of them) who had been gathered from all around the US and beyond by the organizational zeal of Jeff Spies.
It was a great party. Not only did I enjoy meeting so many fascinating, brilliant, innovative people, but I spent a lot of time with my camera trying to capture potential paintings--like this one--showing the incredible colors of fall in this beautiful valley. It had rained briefly that morning, and showers continued intermittently throughout the day, creating a mist that softened the distant colors.
