I was accompanied for this session by students Bin Li and Liz Talley. The weather was too darn hot, and we had to tear down early to avoid getting heatstroke. The session photograph is from a year ago, when the painting was started. It shows Bin Li and Lee Henrickson at their easels.

There is always the possibility that by chasing a scene's changes, it will escape from me entirely. I'm reminded of Antonio López García's basement of failures in Victor Erice's "The Quince Tree Sun." Nature inspires, but she never cooperates.
