"Sandstone Soldier"

This image is from garden of the gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This 7.5" x 7 .5" watercolor with acrylic will be for sale at Mountain Living Studio in Manitou Springs. This piece and "Granite Guardians" are the same size and framed identically and would make a nice pair for your art collection.

Come and join a fun group for a class I'll be teaching at the Loveland museum on March 13, 20 & 27 from 6:30- 8:30 for adults. We'll cover a broad variety, working on composition, transposing & drawing your image then some basic watercolor techniques. This is a great way to go over some basics and/or try something new. The museum will supply all materials. Here is the newsletter online. My class description is on page 4.
