Indian Paintbrush, Ellsworth and Ione Nevada

This week I worked on a couple studies of Indian Paintbrush.  I wanted all the focus to be on the flowers so experimented with painting the mountains solid colors and no pattern.   

Zazzle has a nice selection of puzzles now in a variety of sizes with more pieces and updated cuts.  Some with nice big pieces for youngsters, too.  

Last weekend we went for a drive in search of Ellsworth, Nevada.  It's in a beautiful area with lots of juniper trees tucked way out of the way in some hills 
in the middle of nowhere near Gabbs . . .   Sounds like something from the Twilight Zone.

We found a little cluster of cabins and it looks like people have been living here. They have a few signs up here and there including one called, "The Guilty Party" in a tree.  

We came back through Ione, which still has a few residents.  There is a 
satellite cable dish on the side of one of the houses.   

This was my favorite building in Ione and 
quintessentially Nevada.
