Big Four Mountain

Since the pandemic we haven’t traveled away from home much. However, we have gone on some short day trips. I decided that those should be recorded on Travels With Picasso.

We took a day trip to Big Four Mountain today. The river has bypassed the bridge so the ice caves are not accessible this year, the the views are wonderful. We ate lunch in the meadow, did some sketching and painting, and then hiked in a loop to the Stillaguamish River. Despite the dry weather there are some nice flowers. Of course I can’t resist artistic closeups of the beauty of nature.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    I love your close up of little and not so little flowers. I am glad you dignify simple daily trips with beautiful entries in “Travels with Picasso”, especially since said entries are likely to become inspiration for some future painting. It is also grand to read from you. JP
