It has been such a wonderful spring around Colorado. We are falling in love with our new surroundings in Northern Colorado, and I’m finding that I could become a bird nerd.
I have had a fantastic time showing my work in three new (to me) venues this spring, including Lincoln Gallery in Loveland, Impasto Gallery in Longmont, and the Westminster City Hall. The biggest surprise and boost came when I won Best in Show for my painting, ‘Shadow Play’ at the Colorado Visions show in Westminster, CO! Jane Hunt was the juror, and I am a huge fan of her gorgeous landscape paintings. It was such an encouragement and joy to be honored with this award from someone whom I admire.
Lots of fun things in store this summer. I will get a chance to do some plein air painting in Taos, NM mid-June, and I’ve been invited to show two plein air paintings in the PAAC show (Plein Air Artists of Colorado) in Boulder in September. From someone who has only begun painting outdoors a short while ago, I am truly humbled and joyful to have been accepted to show my work in this exhibition.
