The others took advantage of the vista to paint views of the distant red rocks with some of the greenery in the foreground. This was a good spot as there were many subjects to choose from. I have a feeling we will be going back there again.

Dry Creek Road
I joined Michael Johnson's class for a day of painting along the west branch of Oak Creek on Dry Creek Rd. We were joined by 2 of his students, Jan from British Columbia and Bill from Cincinatti. Dry Creek lived up to its name as there was barely a trickle of water. So, instead of painting the water over the red rocks, we set up on an overlook and painted the beautiful back ground scenery. I tried to concentrate on one Juniper that stood out.
