"I've got Colorado on my mind"


14X11 oil on linen - $325.00 Available - email me for purchasing options

I painted this 11x 14 oil on linen from a photograph we took on a recent trip to Estes Park Colorado, it was a beautiful day and a great vacation. I will always remember this walk that Mark and I took and I am so happy I did a painting of it - evertime I look at the painting - I can think of that place, that day , those sounds and smells.

"The Sound of Running Water"

Sold at Auction
There is this little creek near my house - a place I would have loved to have played at when I was a kid - and obviously still do - I stayed as long as I could painting this - then it just got too hot - I took a picture and finished the piece in my studio.

"All We Need is a Bird"

This painting is a little bigger than I usually work - I enjoyed painting the flower - and I still love this little bird house - I love Bird houses

"Little Bird House"

I really enjoyed painting this guy - I felt that it becuase I liked the subject matter it was just a joy - I also learned from Carol Marine that remixing your colors really makes for a dynamic painting -
