ArtEveryDayMonth day 4

This is the mountain that stares at me daily.  I love it.  And it frustrates me because it is always there, yet constantly changing, and that makes it difficult to capture.  At night with the full moon rising; at sunset when it turns garnet and purple; in dust storms when it disappears; or rainstorms when the clouds surround it.  Amazing.  I've hiked to the top of each of those peaks and gotten to know her, so it's not just a long distance love affair, but one of the things that brings me closer to my Creator.

 I didn't get to work on this watercolor study as much as I wanted, because I had to be somewhere on the other side of that mountain.  When I returned, I had to take the "long way home" (in a story that involves fire trucks and helicopters).  There was a hungry family to feed, a table to clear, and my daily art was shoved aside.

Your painting is really beautiful, but I understand the difficulty as the mountains are always changing colors.
