Uncompahgre River: Full Tilt Spring

I hadn't expected to have the opportunity to post any new paintings while en route to Campobello Island, New Brunswick, but it's a new world out there with wi-fi. Here's a small en plein air oil I did while stopping for a few days in Ouray, colorado. In Ouray, the aspens are greening up and the snowmelt is quickening rivers such as the Uncompahgre. Here is one spot that caught my eye along the river -- I never thought I'd see such gorgeous colors in the springtime!
