Color Collecting III

While hiking to the climbs in Red Rocks I want to just sit down and start grinding the sandstone into pigment powders.  I don't know that much about extracting pigments from earth and ores, but I do know I would not get very far plopping down next to the trail and picking up random rocks.  But as I trudge up the loose slopes in the shadow of the canyon walls I dream of dipping my paint brush straight to the ground and gathering the colors into it.
