Springtime in the Rockies

"View from Independence"
Oil on Canvas

It's supposed to be Spring, so of course it's snowing like crazy here in the mountains. Ten inches and more coming down, which made it a really nice day to stay inside and paint!!

For the record, putting Aspen in daycare proved to be far more traumatic for me than for her today. She had a great time, and even though I worried all day, I still managed to get four paintings started. The new studio space is working well, but I'm having some lighting issues. Nothing that can't be fixed though. Anyhow, it's nice to be painting again - I'm running out of new images to post here (this one's pretty old), so I'd better get some new stuff done!!

On another note, I've got paintings in a couple of shows that open this weekend. The Salon International opens at the Greenhouse Gallery with an awards banquet tomorrow night. I won't be able to attend, but if you're near San Antonio, it'll be a great show! Also, the opening for the Colorado Governor's Invitational Art Show is Saturday night at the Loveland Museum. I got to see a lot of the paintings when I delivered mine last week, and it promises to be a great show this year! If you're in Colorado, it hangs at the museum through mid-May and it's worth a bit of a drive to see it.


  1. I always found it harder to deal with the fact that Daniel didn't seem to mind day care than dealing with having to leave him there; it hurt my feelings a little bit. Hehe. I mean, it's not what any of us would choose if we really had a choice. Alas, we really don't, and luckily we can find good day care, and afford it. But she'll do fine. She's used to being away from you, which is the biggest struggle.

  2. Dang, I wish they linked to your painting on the Governor's Art Show site. Maybe we'll take Rob's mom up there next weekend when she's in town.

  4. Your work is amazing. I am an admirer of those who can create such open air and push great distances with their artwork.
