Last week I had the joy of painting in the Yosemite. Only a few hour drive from my home I realize it is something I should do more often. Hoping to escape the heat of CA's Central Valley, I was surprised to find it 94 degrees on the valley's floor. Painting in a shady spot with a view of Halfdome with rafters and swimmers frolicking in the river in front of me I was able to capture these two images.
