A few short weeks ago, fellow artist Theda Hewuse and I ventured up on Rib Mountain with our plein-air gear to enjoy the beautiful fall day. The colors were just beautiful, and a painting was to be found no matter where you looked. This view is near the amphitheater overlooking part of Wausau.
As I was painting this, I had an epiphany. You see, several years ago (in my previous life, as I like to say) I used to work as an art director/designer at an ad agency in Rib Mountain. I was fortunate enough to have an office on the west side of the building with a window view of Rib Mountain. Every fall there would be this amazing, golden glow of the maple trees outside my window. It was beautiful. I remember staring out the window, dreaming that someday I was going to be a painter, and I was going to paint those golden maple trees on Rib Mountain. Fast forward to October 2013. There I was, up on the mountain, painting those golden maple trees. Just like I had dreamed of doing.

Just a reminder, Playing with Paint is this Saturday at the Hobby Lobby store in Rib Mountain, WI. The class runs from 10 am - 12:30 pm. We will be "playing" around with acrylic paints and creating big sky landscapes. Come give it a try. Bring your coffee, a canvas and some of your friends. I'll take care of the rest. Details are here.
