Stone Cloud


I went away this week
Up the North Fork to Polebridge
stayed in a cabin named Stone Cloud

the name of this beautiful and wild land inspired this painting:


while in Stone Cloud
the mountains became her wings

today is the last day of February
which is the last day of Alaya's 29 Faces!

Thank you so much for hosting this inspiring event!

and yes
the stones around here can be quite colorful:

but the land was not summer 
it is still very much winter here:

  11. This was an excellent experience! I recognize you in this lovely painting.

    Your winter is very strong!! Often I think of all my friends there over the ocean. Our winter in Bavaria was extremely soft this year, easyer to live for old women, old dogs and old hen, thanks goodness....

  18. Just beautiful, Tammie Lee. The colours are so peaceful and her face too! As soon as I saw the rocks, I thought, "There are those gorgeous Montana rocks that Tammie likes so much!"

  21. Ha Tammie,prachtig deze dame ook de kleuren
    mooie achtergrond maar de voorgrond met de stenen ook heel mooi!
    Bij jou winterse foto,s hier in Nederland is het zacht soms lenteachtig.
    Liefs een groetje Christiene.

    Ha Tammie, this beautiful lady also colors
    nice background, but the foreground with the stones very beautiful!
    Winter at your picture, s here in the Netherlands sometimes soft spring-like.
    A lovingly greet you Christiene.

  22. A lovely watercolour painting, and I particularly like the colourful clouds, so much more expressive than realism, they are happy clouds. What gorgeous coloured pebbles, I wish I could see them in real life.
    I've much enjoyed my journey back through all your 29 Faces. Thank you.

  24. I love this one! At first, I thought Stone Clouds was such a curious name. But then I saw your painting and suddenly it all made sense and everything was perfect. Her wings and the colorful stones at her feet -- so gorgeous! And I love the snow on the mountain tops too.
