Idyllwild, California, has always been one of our favorite places to retreat. We began visiting when we were first married, and always loved the beautiful mountain sunsets. Once we stopped our car and watched in awe, while classical music played from a nearby cabin. This is a recreation of that spectacular scene, when the sky was awash with color and all was right with the world. I still like to return, in memory, to that golden time.

    Another gorgeous sky… It looks like a gorgeous spot although I don’t recall ever being there. Maybe I’ll go this year!

    Will you be participating in the Idyllwild plein air event??
