Sacajawea Peak

I hiked into the Eagle Cap Wilderness this morning. I had almost given up on painting because it was overcast, but it eventually cleared. I'm not terribly happy with this study (it looks too much like an illustration), but hopefully I learned something for the next one. The hike in was perfumed with the scents of wild berry and sage; it is blackberry and huckleberry season. Wildflowers are still thick on the ground and mosquitos thick in the air. I am not in shape for my upcoming Sierra trip so I thought I'd make myself do more hiking.

Hi Sharon,
I was so happy to find your blog (via Bill Cone's). I am such a huge admirer of your work on Ratatouille (for one) and your sense of color and light is so beautiful. I will visit every post for sure.

Cheers,
Michael Sheehan
