Right: My favorite piece from my recent trip to Walden, Colorado. I painted it during a storm! My easel blew over twice and there was so much dirt on my canvas I had to frantically finish with a knife. "Walden Storm" 8x10 oil
One of the most fun aspects of being an artist is being with good friends in gorgeous locations.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining twelve women artists for a week in the mountains. We were generously hosted on a 2,000 acre ranch! Some of these painters are icons I have admired for decades, but they were all so warm and down to earth. I returned home with eleven paintings, advanced ATV skills, and twelve wonderful new friends!

Right: We got to cruise all around the ranch on ATV's. Incredible luck to be up there right as the leaves were changing. Lots of opportunites to paint golden aspen trees!
