This is the view from a porch on the Rio Grand River in Creede, CO. I wanted to capture the blazing color of the setting sun on the water with watercolor and gouache.
A crystal clear pond in the McNay Museum courtyard in San Antonio is the setting for this water lily study. The underwater shapes and shadows were what interested me most, along with my favorite shades of yellow greens.
My daughter and I walked 115 miles of the Camino de Santiago in Spain two years ago, after the loss of my husband and her father. It was an incredibly spiritual and beautiful time for us. There were so many panoramas and lovely churches along the way.
This pilgrimage has been inspiring people for hundreds of years and was an experience of a lifetime for me.
I love aspen trees and going to Colorado summer to see them . This painting evolved from a previous work that needed more. I painted out the image and looked to the color palette left behind and saw these blue wintry aspen.
