In a small town on the eastern prairie of Colorado, this old garage and its residents simmer in the midday heat. The prairie holds many wonders and lots of cool stuff.

Labor Day Weekend
Victor Celebrates the Arts

Painting at 10,000 feet
I've been painting in Victor, Colorado, a picturesque gold-mining town high on the slopes of Pikes Peak. Artists from near and far have been 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.

A drive to Victor makes a great get-away. Mark your calendar and come up for the fun on Labor Day weekend.

"Up and Away"
Giclee print

Featured Print
This month, I'm featuring "Up and Away." I was a member of a hot-air balloon crew for many years and often found myself drifting freely a few hundred feet above the landscape moving toward an unknown landing, a great experience for a landscape painter.

A road meanders from the high prairie to the mountains where a late-summer thunderstorm tries to gain a foothold. An idyllic journey on a summer afternoon. I love driving this little road, seeing the way the landscape changes as it climbs up to the mountains.
