   New Collections - Mesa Verde and the San Juans

Cliff Palace Photo

This latest collection comes from the Rims To Ruins plein air painting event at Mesa Verde National Park, May 15 - 17, 2014. This year they welcomed 25 nationally renowned artists who had the opportunity to hike into exclusive areas of the park. This fundraising event enables the Mesa Verde Foundation to support many projects in the park.

The second part of Rims To Ruins will occur in Denver in November at the Wildlife Experience Museum. Here, additional works from the May plein air paint out, along with works from several other participating artists will be for sale.

I also took the opportunity to paint along the way throughout the San Juans including areas around Ouray, Ridgway, Silverton and Pagosa Springs.

   New Collection - Islamic Architecture

Mosque of Mohammed Ali

I think some of the BEAUTIFUL ARCHITECTURE in the WORLD is ISLAMIC in nature. A DOME surrounded by SPIRES [ minarets ] is from a DESIGN point very STUNNING.

   New Collection - Aspen in Colorado 2013

My GOAL was to spend most of my time at THE MAROON BELLS near ASPEN. I traveled colorado highway # 24 from COLORADO SPRINGS, passing by BASSAM PARK, BUENA VISTA, up to TWIN LAKES over INDEPENDANCE PASS to ASPEN. I passed by a lot of MOUTH WATERING SIGHTS [ WATERCOLORIST TERM ] & also painted THEM!
