Today the Denver Plein Air painters met at Empire. It is quite a drive up into the mountains. It was cool and windy up there. I drove a little past the village and found this scene. It was a bit secluded and I wondered about wildcats and bears and snakes, but didn't see any.

The famous Iris farm is the place where the Boulder group met this past week. Yesterday was such a lovely day, so I looked it up. The people there were friendly and helpful. They have a wonderful catalog that is famous far and wide. It was thrilling to see the purple in the rows of iris blooms reflected in the mountain.

On this day I drove toward Eldorado Springs and stopped at an "open space" trailhead to paint. A set of six year old twins were very interested in my painting. They even mentioned Van Gough. They even brought out their own art work and then sat down to paint alongside me.

The Denver Plein Air Painters Met at Old South Gaylord Street last week. This area is the second oldest shopping district in Denver. It truly looked and felt like another place, far removed from this modern city.

This is a scene along a walking path near where I am living. The day was overcast so I decided not to go to the mountains. I walked about a mile to a little creek. This time I had a larger canvas and made a great start, but then a light rain began to fall. Not wanting to abandon the start and knowing it would all be different on a different day, I persevered. By the time I left I was shivering & stiff with cold. At least I don't think it is overworked.

This is the result of the Plein Air paintout in Denver two weeks ago. I was told that snow capped peak in the distance is Mount Evans. The sun was bright, but the wind was blustery, so I painted in my car.

What a lovely day to paint. Only a little windy, as the mountains tend to generate wind! Hold onto your hat. This road into the open space was the ideal picture, framed by dark pines and the distant snow covered mountains.

It has been a couple of weeks since I have been connected, but I have not stopped painting! Now I finally have access to internet and will share with you again. Below is the first of two small paintings I did on a beautiful sunny day near Boulder. This was just a little north of the Teller Farms Open Space.
