Taylor River, Colorado

9:30AM – 2PM
30 degrees
36 x 48 inches acrylic on polycarbonate

There was an earlier beginning to today’s paintings at 9:30 with a snow prediction for the middle of the day. We set up on the ice where the first Taylor River painting was created. The sun was almost non-existent and the silver overcast set off the majority of the surface film. The most exciting moves today was stacking paintbrush ends on the same line and referring to it as a “slop rig”. The lines it created were unpredictable but had incredible movement. To finish off the piece that was reminiscent of the snow that was falling false casts were made in front of the painting surface, throwing flecks of iridescent pearl white all over the final painting’s surface.
