A Plein Air Day

Today I wandered out with the dogs to find a painting spot. It took me a long time to settle, and meanwhile I'm carrying a 35 pound pack up and down hills and down by the river. I started a small sketch down in the river gorge, but it was getting late and had to wrap up and head back to get supper started. I hope to go back there and finish up.
Meanwhile, here's another small plein air sketch of the Cox Ranch, a beautiful piece of property not far from here.  It used to be a Dude Ranch, and that's why there are so many long cabins.  The day I was painting this, a coyote wandered across the field right below me, stopped to look at me, then crossed the river and went on his way.
