Colorado Rockies, is my series of paintings to draw attention to the Rocky Mountains, our beautiful open spaces and to see them through fresh eyes in the age of global warming when these beautiful spaces are at risk.
I spend time hiking in the Rockies, taking thousands of photos and making studies while the sun moves across the sky. I'm looking for the lighting, the color that and setting that speaks to me before returning to my studio and prepping boards for my work. Different things speak to me, sometimes it is the rich color of a winter landscape, the imposing cliffs of Hallet Peak, or the meandering river that slices through rich grasses on it's way down from the mountains that rise like frozen waves above the grasslands of Colorado.
