Hidden Mesa 9x12 oil
This is painted real fast. I had to get to SAKs to deliver a couple of paintings for the PAAC show there. I see a few things I will change but for the most part, I will leave it alone. Maybe just a little more light between the buildings. Had a nice conversation with Adam, the guy who is improving the area. I think I'll go back on my bike to look around the cherry creek trail.

Alamo Placita Park 14x11 oil on panel
I was very worried that there would be no flowers available to paint, but luck was on my side. Although the plantings were not as full as they would be later in the year there still was a lot of color. I painted this in the sun so it has some difficult values. After adjusting them in the studio the painting is complete. When I get better I will be able to add figures, like the gardeners that were there tending the plants. Some of the peonies were beat down after the rain last night but Nancy captured them in all their splendor. Next time I'll try to paint them.
