Sierra Backpacking Paintings

IMG_2406

It has been an amazing summer– I have spent probably half of it in a tent… camping with my family, backpacking with Lauren for a few nights and then solo backpacking for a week.  I worked out a lightwieght way to carry an easel, cardboard palette, paints and brushes along and I’m looking forward to sharing paintings made days from the nearest parking lot.  IMG_2432

This first one is of Moon Lake near Pine Creek Pass.  Like many of the paintings from this trip, it comes with certified authentic Sierra mosquitoes fossilized in the paint.  (When you paint wildflowers, you will also be painting the bugs…)

  1. Sounds like an incredible summer. Going to be hard to settle down to staying home. Beautiful paintings are always better when further enhanced with wildlife (bugs especially).
