"I am lucky to have artist friends across the US and visiting and painting plein air with them is not only fun, but inspiring.

Here, the diagonal at the base of the near hill in shadow on the right is countered by the long diagonal that leads the eye across and up to the right. The triangular outcropping stops the eye and leads back down to a similar triangle to the left. And so on....
