More Caspers Wilderness Park

It's so beautiful at this park I had to go back and do some painting of the views there.  I think this will be a location I will go and paint often as there are so many paintings to do there!
Late afternoon or early morning is the best time to paint because the light is best at these times.
Only problem with painting late afternoon, or close to dusk, is that's when the mountain lions come out to feed!  Signs are all around the park warning of mountain lion country.  Still, it's worth it as long as you are aware.

Alright, one more shot...........
