The day started out really chilly and I was worried about the
sun maybe not showing up, but it all worked out just great. Some have mentioned that is difficult to leave a comment. It you are having trouble please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org This is an ongoing challenge.

Another beautiful day in Colorado. Jean Widman graciously invited PAAC to paint at her house up near Look Out Mountain. It is just gorgeous up there. So this is titled "Look Out Mnt" 9x12 oil. She said that the deer and elk often visit her here in her back yard. They weren't around today, but to be careful of the mountain lion that is said to have 2 cubs with her. That is why I stayed on the porch. :-)

10/8/11 pastels 9x12
How much fun can you have? These sketches were done at the Art Students League for the Pastel Society of Colorado. I had the good fortune of demo-ing the different kinds of grounds a pastel painting can be painted on. Five same sketches were done on different grounds, UArt, ArtSpectrum pastel ground on Masonite and Golden Acrylic Pastel ground on hardboard (MDF) and smooth cotton canvas from Raymar. The emphasis was on fun. When was the last time you got to just play with the materials. We learn so much faster when we play.

Turkey Creek Aspens 9x12 oil
Peter Heineman, artist and friend, invited the PAAC group up to paint at his home in Cripple Creek. It was the perfect timing as the weather man forecasts colder temperatures and cloudy skies this coming weekend. This nice little spot is on the way up the driveway to his house. Many artists chose this area for good reason. It is a glowing little gem of a scene.
