Autumn Harvest by Scott Ruthven
4"x5" Oil on hardboard
Fall is a beautiful time of year in Colorado when the sky is clear, the trees change colors and farmers harvest their crops. This small study of Mt. Meeker and Longs Peak that I painted en plein air yesterday captures it all. Artist Worthington Whittredge (of Hudson River School fame) painted some scenes close to this location in the late 1800's.
