Exhibits White Gold “BRRRR”- A very cold winter day along Chalk Creek in Colorado. Beautiful soft, warm light and cool colors were the motivation for this piece. Although a calming and peaceful experience, I was glad to get back to the warmth of my van. Sunday Drive- Leadville I really enjoy painting small town architecture.The preliminary study was completed quickly due to the changing shadows.Light and shadow contrast is what drew me to this particular spot. Staying focused is a challenge due to the many curious new “friends” I meet while working these fun locations. San Juan Delight While visiting old friends who recently moved to Montrose, Colorado, I was taken with this view of the San Juan Range from their “Backyard”.The contrast of the medium soft light foreground and the super soft high key mountains was my inspiration. The dark and gloomy morning clouds gave way to this wonderful Colorado mountain scene. Café Paris On a painting trip to Portugal, we stopped in the lovely town of Sentra. In the main square is a restaurant named “Café Paris”. There was such a captivating energy of the people enjoying the sunny day that I was inspired to paint it. Signs of the Great Spirit I created this piece because I’m fascinated by the connection between people and nature. This is a painting of a group of Kiowa Indians searching for the meaning of the passing storm. Ridgeway Dimming of the Day On a painting trip with my friend Dean, to the San Juan Mountain range, we stopped in the town of Ridgeway. As the sun lit the background peaks east of town and cast shadows, I was reminded of the song “Dimming of the Day”, written by Richard Thompson.
