Painting in Wenatchee

Last half of Last week I was on vacation and in Wenatchee for skiing and painting. Saturday afternoon when the temperature was not too low (lower 30s), I drove down on Malaga-Alco hwy along Columbia River. A little after I passed Alco Wenatchee plant I stopped my car and set up my easel on the south side of the road. I was attracted by the icy hills and sagebrush on the bottom. I spent about 2 hours to paint this. I could have spent more time but the temperature started dropping and oil paint was becoming stiffer. So I gave up. Even though I didn't spend much time to create proper colors for sagebrush, I think I somewhat captured the coldness of the hills.
