OK, we painted together again on this Monday. Of course Rog was contemplating world peace while Craig painted his painting and “left the building”. So Rog is apologizing here for not getting Craig’s beautiful painting into this post.
This past weekend Craig and Fred attempted to cross over the Trinity Pass. You know, the pass that Rog specifically purchased his motorcycle to drive over. If you did not know, Rog loves the Trinity Mountains. Anyway, apparantly the snow is still covering the pass making it impassable, even for four wheelers. So Fred and Craig painted plein air somewhere down the road from the pass. Below is Fred’s version of the plein air motif.

Today [Monday], Ellen and Rog did some paintings. Below is Ellen’s excellent value based rendition of Mount Regan, which has Sawtooth Lake at its basin…
“Mt Regan”, by Ellen Garrard.
…and Rog, he did another study of another artist…
