Save the Poudre!

This week and next, I am participating in the juried event, "Paint the Poudre Plein Air." There are 39 artists from Colorado and other states participating in this 9 day event which will raise money for "Save the Poudre".  The Poudre River is a wild and scenic river in Northern Colorado.  To keep it wild, Save the Poudre is trying to block drainage of this river for  proposed reservoirs.  The Poudre is used by fisherman, rafters, kayak-ers, artists, hikers, and others who enjoy one of the last rivers in Colorado that has not been damned.  

These are few of the plein air (created outdoors) mini oils that I have painted with many more to come.  Artists will pick their favorite 3 paintings and they will be for sale at the AANC gallery in Ft. Collins, Colorado on July 12-14, 2013.
