The many inspirations of Colorado and New Mexico

watercolor-IMG_4170-1024x768Spending the summer months in Colorado and New Mexico (rather than steamy Texas) is a real luxury. It’s also an inspiration.

In fact, you can expect to see the flora and fauna of beautiful Colorado in my upcoming work!

Currently, I’m north of Steamboat Springs outside the town of Clark for the next week or so — plein air watercoloring, sketching, hiking and scouting out places to paint.

Three very generous collectors (Thank you Barbara and David and Dan!) have offered me their second homes in New Mexico and Colorado this month and I am making the most of my time here.

I think this is as close to Heaven as it gets.

If you’d like to receive my monthly updates in your inbox, you can sign up for my newsletter.  I write an article occasionally and send out invitations to upcoming events – and I will send you a calendar every month.

By the way, look for news on a show opening at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT)  in Fort Worth on August 29th. I’ll send out more information on that later this month. Check out their website. They have some really great programs this summer for families and kids.
