The painting is no longer with me but I enjoy this photo, as well as all the other photos of that marvelous place.
I now live like 25 minutes from this place, which in the mountains means practically next door.
The technique involved an underpainting and layers of glazed paint, a technique I enjoyed a lot in art school or whatnot. It took me from September thru December, but not working nonstop.
