Blue River

Oil on Linen
11 x 14

Painted the Blue River in Breckenridge, Colorado while everyone else skied the crowded slopes over Thanksgiving.  I'm just too much of a chicken to brave it out there on a couple of open runs hosting hundreds of  skiers and boarders from beginners to advanced - to harrowing for me!

Packed up my paints and took a stroll on the trail along the river and found this wonderfully peaceful spot.  The trail dips down to the river every time it goes under a bridge allowing for intimate views of the river.  My only visitors were friendly folk walking their dogs.
