Day 5 - A Silver Lakes Sunset

We've had some amazing clouds here lately, which are a total distraction to me when I'm driving. Dangerous stuff!  

10.5 x 13.5" Watercolor on paper. $95. Buy here. 

I painted this one from a photo that I took yesterday, just up the road from my house where the road ends and the creosote bush begins. This is attempt #2. The first one didn't turn out well at all and is now resting in my recycling bin. Oh well. Something that I learned from my initiation into pottery this summer is that when a ball of clay is refusing to center itself on the wheel, you just keep pushing. When a bowl turns into a "catawompus", you scrape it off and begin a new one.
