Evening shadows down along the Colorado River near Moab bring a cool quiet to the canyon.

Comb Ridge cuts a jagged line across southeastern Utah. Ancestral Puebloans once called this home. Their art adorns the cliffs and their dwellings hide among the canyons.

Labor Day Weekend
Victor Celebrates the Arts

Painting at 10,000 feet
I'm heading for Victor, Colorado, a picturesque gold-mining town high on the slopes of Pikes Peak. Artists from near and far will be painting the town and the surrounding countryside during the week before Labor Day.

The event continues through Labor Day weekend with a show featuring the newly created and often still wet paintings.

Among the many events is the "Quick Draw" on Labor Day from 9 am to noon. Artists (including yours truly) will be creating paintings on the spot while you watch. And while you're there, look for my table with many small paintings for sale.

This is a fun time, and at an elevation of nearly 10,000 feet, it's a great place to escape the heat.
So mark your calendar and come up for the fun on Labor Day weekend.

North Cheyenne Creek makes its way down the mountainside near Colorado Springs. We often hike here, especially in the fall when the bright gold of the foliage is echoed in the stream.
