Smoke and Canyons

While we were at the north rim last year smoke from the wildfires in Idaho would tint and blanket the canyon depending on the wind.   I am still experimenting with capturing those canyons, this time in watercolor.

More birds

The white bird of paradise in my back garden has bloomed in two cycles this year with huge flowers.  I have taken photos practically all summer of those plants and now need to get painting....
This is the first of what has come from this year's bloom
