Merced River Encounter
Painting - Plein Air Watercolor
I was painting in Yosemite Valley this Autumn afternoon in 1976 on the Merced River with my girlfriend by my side sunning herself on a blanket, when an old man with a tripod over his shoulder came up behind me and started to chat about my painting, making some very complimentary remarks. I tried to chat, but was so into my painting that I really did not look back at him but rather continued to paint and gave him very little attention. After a few minutes he continued on his way along the rivers edge. Linda, my girlfriend said to me, do you know who that is? I did not but as I look at his lumbering form with the old wooden tripod and huge 8"x10" camera, she said that was Ansel Adams. I have always wondered if I am in one of his photos painting in the foreground. Maybe somewhere in his archives.
