My wife and I went on a long mountain bike ride at Folsom Lake today. It was our twenty-third anniversary. We rode about twenty five miles, much of it through sand. It was pretty strenuous although we saw many paint-worthy bits of landscape. I did something a little different and put this little sketch together from impressions I remembered from the ride. I'm not sure how successful it is as a painting, but I enjoyed the process and think there is some potential for more exercises like this as I get more comfortable with the process.
