The leaves have changed and the wind is scattering them everywhere. The Colorado mountains are having their first big snowstorm of the year. It was fun while it lasted... "Alpha" is part of a commissioned series I completed. Wolves no longer run free in Colorado as they once did. For this image I needed to recreate a scene with a wolf in the winter with recognizable landscape from northern Colorado. Although the original is sold, prints and giclees can be ordered throughfineartamerica.com Thanks for following my blog!
I have to admit that "Gold Rush" has been one of my very favorite paintings. This 30" x 15" pastel won a juror's choice (Best of Show) at an art show at the Lincoln Gallery in Loveland, Colorado. I did have the piece scanned for high resolution giclees.
Here is yet another painting of Longs Peak and Autumn. This is a large acrylic on canvas I painted and sold to Exempla's Good Samaritan Hospital. Longs Peak is not only the tallest peak in Northern Colorado, but an infamous one that many people climb each year.
I have this image of "Longs Peak" (pastel/sold 18" x 24") available in canvas giclees. I would like to reduce my inventory at extremely reduced prices. I have a 15" x 20" stretched and framedcanvas giclee (#3/250) that I am ready to sell for $125 (below wholesale!) plus $20 for shipping/handling. The retail value of this giclee is $248 which does not include stretching and framing! This would make a fabulous gift for any mountain lover. Act quickly, this offer won't last!
It snowed! This is a painting transformed. I painted "Hallet Peak" awhile ago when I painted mostly in acrylics. I wanted to soften the colors to decided to let it snow. I like the new version better. This painting is for sale, for more info,contact me.
I painted "Longs Peak Cabin" (watercolor/sold) from a sweet cabin built adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park (Colorado) in Autumn. They had an incredible view of Longs Peak, the tallest mountain peak in Northern Colorado at 14,239 feet.
I painted these small watercolors of autumn leaves using a minimal pallet of transparent paint. These were purely for fun, but the bottom image was recently used for the brochure, postcard and poster for the 2010 Loveland Art Studio Tour and Sale. I will be participating again this year.
Quite often if I find a subject that I really like, I may try it in a smaller version before I attempt a larger one. These images are of Clarks Peak in the Colorado State Forest in Northern Colorado. The first (top) image I painted in watercolor (sold). When I was submitting artwork for the Exempla Good Samaritan Hospital they chose "Clarks Peak" which I then replicated in a 18" x 24" pastel.
This painting was inspired by the Pumpkin Patches that dot the landscape of the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies in October. It was a challenging painting in watercolor but I was pleased with the result.
I painted "Mac Gregor Ranch" after visiting Rocky Mountain National Park (Colorado) on a crisp fall day with just a frosting of snow on the mountain tops. This little oil painting is sold but I do have other available artwork for sale.
