The Gunnison River on the winter solstice. This was along my old school bus route when I drove for the Gunni school district. I actually parked the bus (all the kids were safely delivered home) and trudged down to the bank to do a color study. The study was 8x10, I think, and it was absolutely terrible, because the paint was freezing on my brush. It looked more like a used palette than a painting, but there were a few smudges of icy acrylic mud that were more or less the right colors.
