Last Light, 8x10 oil on canvas panel

Today I painted at the Salt River, in the Phon D. Sutton recreation area.  This is a scenic spot right by the river, with many beautiful vistas.  If you're lucky, the Salt River wild horses will come by to visit.  I went there this afternoon, since the light is so good at this time of year.  I found a nice shady spot to set up, and although I had originally intended to paint a scene looking east, when I looked toward the west and saw the light on the mountains and the rocks, and the beautiful Fall foliage lit by the setting sun, I quickly changed my mind!
