"Hazy Day"

"High Mountain Meadow"

Colorado Expressions @ La Veta

Time again for the Spanish Peaks Arts Council to showcase artwork in a variety of media that is all about Colorado.

The Colorado Expressions show opens with a reception on Saturday June 26, 5-7 pm, and remains on display until Saturday July 17. If you're in the neighborhood, it should be an interesting collection of art by many accomplished artists; definitely worth a look!

I will have two acrylic paintings in the show: "High Mountain Meadow" (8" x 10", on canvas board), and "Hazy Day" (6" x 6", on 100% rag museum board). See them directly above this post.

"Clouds at Play over Blanca"

Five Paintings for Alamosa ArtWalk

The winter seems to be melting away, even though we had a big blizzard last Friday! It's suddenly spring, and time for ArtWalk here in Alamosa. I am busy framing and will hang my five paintings this week at Hospice del Valle, 514 Main Street, for the big event this Saturday, March 27. (The five paintings will appear directly above this posting)

It is always difficult to decide which paintings to show. I finally decided to select by subject matter, and they are all of places right here at the north edge of town. The titles will explain nicely. Following is the Statement I have prepared for this show:

Artist Statement

Most days I walk on the levee along the south side of the Rio Grande, La Veta to State.
In summer, I sometimes bike on the levee north of the Rio, west from State around the big bend, across the south end of the Ranch, and back on Cottonwood to State.

What magnificent views at different times of the day, in different kinds of weather!

Light in the morning and evening changes everything --- often quickly and astoundingly.

I strive to capture some of that drama in the studio.

"Evening Gold"


Taos Show...Hearts and Stars

Somehow the year ended without me telling about participating in the December Hearts and Stars Miniature Show in Taos, NM. It is a show held each year at Wilder Nightingale Fine Art specifically to benefit the Taos Coalition to End Homelessness.

This was my first year to send a couple paintings to the show and I was happy to hear that my 8x10 landscapes, "Evening Gold" and "Twilight", received some positive attention. See the paintings directly above this post.

Thanks to Wilder Nightingale Fine Art for hosting this worthwhile benefit!
