STREAM NEAR MEERS
I see I haven't posted for several days, still painting but not getting it to my blog.
This is the demo painting for my evening class last Tuesday. This scene is near Meers which at one time was a bustling town of 500 gold miners who mined in the Wichita Mountains. Now, I understand, there is a family of six left. This family owns the Meers Restaurant, home of the famous 7 inch diameter Meersburger made from the long horn beef they raise. Absolutely delicious and purported to have less cholesteral
impact than chicken. But back to the
stream.....you park and then hike up an
incline for this view. The stream splashes
over rocks and boulders and
around a bend offering up many paintable
options. Also great place to hike.
