"Spring Runoff" 11x14 Pastel

Spring is taking its time arriving in the High Sierras. Aspen trees that normally leaf out during May, are just starting to turn green at this point.

When there is an abundance of snowfall from winter months, the Snowcreek meadow in Mammoth Lakes overflows with snowmelt. I thought this painting best described the feeling of this time of year.

This painting was a previous demonstration from the Landscapes In Pastel class I teach at the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center.

This painting is available through Coons Gallery, Bishop California (760)872-1524

800. framed
