Last week I drove to Lake Tahoe. As usual, it was VERY beautiful, very crowded, with heavy traffic. I shouldda gone during a weekday, but since it’s summer I’m not sure it would have made a difference. Winter is just as crowded with skiers and nowhere to park a car because the snow is piled up everywhere. Anyhow, I only did one painting and finished it at home, and glad to get home too. I go into a glassy-eyed coma when there are too many people around. And yes, the water really is that color.
