Paint the Poudre Plein Air: Swetsville Zoo

On two mornings of the Paint the Poudre Plein Air event, I went to the Swetsville Zoo in Timnath, Colorado.  Bill Swets has created an incredible sculpture park he's created out of welding old cars, farm equipment and anything else he re-purposes into the most creative sculptures around.  I choose to paint one of his 'fisherman' on the Poudre River.  I also painted his knight & dragon which I will post when I finish the painting (I got rained out)  The Swetsville Zoo is a Northern Colorado treasure that is endangered.  Do visit the zoo!  There is no admission charge, but donations are accepted to help defray the costs. I took my kids there 20 years ago but I still enjoy this treasure and am thankful to Bill Swets for sharing his creativity.
