Hidden Mesa Farm House

We met at the Hidden Messa Open Space south of Parker this week. The house has been empty for years.

Peonies Mid-Day

The Denver Plein Air painters met at Alamo Placita Park, which I read translates "little place of the cottonwoods". It is downtown and the section where we met was busy with gardeners. Peonies have always been one of my favorite flowers and the contrast of dark leaves and white flower drew me to them. The pink clump to the right had already been weighted to the ground.

Broomfield, Open Space

It was my intention last week to meet the two plein air groups at this particular open space. I had such trouble finding the lovely hilltop everyone had left by the time I arrived. But the breeze was cool and a small shelter made a perfect shaded studio space. I may crop to bottom of the painting.
