I painted these paintings for a show in Mueller State Park. All of them depict scenes within the park, a rolling, forested landscape in the Pikes Peak region of Colorado.

Mueller State Park, on the western slope of Pikes Peak, is a rolling wonderland of forest and meadow. And this year it's GREEN! As you can see from the paintings, the park is a riot of green, every kind of green. Artists often shy away from scenes of this much green, but there was no way around it this year. Painting Mueller was an enjoyable challenge. And I ended up with some good paintings.
If you're anywhere around the Pikes Peak region this summer, plan a hike or picnic or even a camping trip to the park.

Thanks...
To Kenneth Shanika, who organized this 2-day show, and all the wonderful staff and volunteers at the park. They really made it a fun experience for us artists.

///   On the Road  

Summer is the time for road trips.

Here's one. We took a day trip over to Chalk Creek. It's one of my favorite places in the Collegiate Peaks of Colorado. We have a special bend in the creek where we go to enjoy getting outdoors in a beautiful setting. I paint. Patrice explores. Jake does dog things. We have a picnic lunch and relax. Here's a photo:
