Glenmore Reservoir, Calgary

This plein air (painted outside on location) painting is of Glenmore Reservior with the grain elevator in Heritage Park on the left. Creative Path artist Joan and I painted this from outside the Rockyview Hospital. It was a grey sky day and windy. It is so much fun painting with other artists because their interpretation and what excites them within a landscape is usually very different from each other. We went after work so had to speed paint to get done in time. I would of loved to post Joan's painting but we did not have our cameras. I loved the snow covered beautiful Rocky Mountains, almost the same colour as the sky.
