I had noticed while walking the Granite Mountain trailhead in the summer around 4pm, with the sun starting to go behind the mountain, how the mountain would start to become a luminescent bluish color…

Well, I decided to paint at that spot but more of a winter version with the sun at a different latitude and the yellow and brown grasses. What a beautiful day!
