A clear view of the mountains

A few peaks viewed down the road from my PNW studio
It was a beautifully clear day with a view of the Cascade Mountain peaks near where I live. I sat in the car and sketched this today.
They don't call this the Evergreen State for nothing! What other temperate zone landscape has emerald foothills and green grass in the yard at the end of January?


  1. Lovely sketch of the mountain peaks!! I know they look so close but must be a far distance!

    1. Thank you, Joan. You've got the concept of my sketch exactly. Seems that when the sky is clear and the light just right, you could almost touch those mountains even though they are over a hundred miles away.
