CMPAF Salida

 St Elmo Aspens 9x12 oil plein air at the Colorado Plein Air Festival - sold
The Arroyo 11x14 oil plein air at the CMPAF

What a great time painting with Carl Bork and Joshua Been and Barry Thomas and another guy whom I forgot his name. Sorry. Then to cool down, we went and had some beers before the show opening. Fishing in the morning, painting and good conversations with new friends, and a show in the evening, who could ask for a better day. Oh and a sale to boot. Pretty close to heaven.

Denver Plein Air Entries

 Big Red Spyder 12x16 oil plein air
 Cherry Creek @ Confluence Park 12x16 oil plein air
Water Fall 16x20 oil plein air

These paintings will be entered into the Denver Plein Air Festival. This year has been the most difficult because the schedule was really tight and finding parking and interesting spots was very challenging. I think my head set was on a little askew. Need to fine tune my art mind. My grumpy mind seemed to be the dominant voice this time around. Maybe if I go watch some Monty Python I can re-adjust the head set. lol

Engine 191 oil studio 11x14
This painting is destined to go down to Georgetown. I have neglected my galleries for too long. Will start painting to catch up and keep the customers satisfied. :-) Next week I will be at the Colorado Mountain Plein air event in Buena Vista and Salida. I am looking forward to fishing the Arkansas.

Man was it windy. This spot seemed to be the safest spot to paint.
