Painting After the Floods

Three Toe River Valley Plein Air Painters ventured outside today to paint along the Cane River just west of Burnsville in Yancey County.  There has been significant rainfall the past several days and there was evidence that the river had come up at least 2 feet.  Where we were standing to paint had very obviously been underwater recently.  

But... today the weather was dry and we were painting.  The sky changed from blue with white puffy clouds, to no blue and huge dark clouds within an hour, and then back to blue again.  Typical mountain weather.

Here are some photos from today's adventure....

My very green painting.

It was wonderful to be able to get outside and paint today.  With all the rain, everything is suddenly turning green and I've been feeling like I'm breathing green.  My painting certainly conveys those feelings!  

Thanks for reading.  We'd love to have you come join us next time.  You'll find announcements of our paint outs on the events section of (North Carolina Plein Air Painters).

Paint on!
