Winter Rapids

Somewhere near the remote town of Red Cliff, which was once a mining camp in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, I saw this picturesque scene by the roadside. In spite of the cold, the stream flowed freely in my direction. An early snow had left its traces on the tall pines in the background.

A brief stop for photos and sketches resulted in the final watercolor painting, done in my Santa Fe studio.
