West From Marshall

Marshall Drive is one of my favorite roads to get to and from Highway 93 in the south Boulder vicinity. It has that small country road feel to it for a couple of miles which is something that I love.
The painting's view is close to where Marshall Drive meets 66th Street just west of Superior, CO.
Marshall Drive follows a small valley with two ridge lines on either side. The view to the west looks past a field of grasses and cattails (or corn dog grass) into Eldorado Springs Canyon.
On this day, storm clouds were forming over the higher terrain that later brought thunderstorms to the north part of the metro area.
