“Due to a huge amount of rain, it was a banner year for Colorado wildflowers. This painting tries to capture that rainbow of color against the mountain.”
The Sweeney ranch sits at the beginning of the hill country in Morgan Mill. From the rockers on the back porch of the ranch house, one looks at this amazing multi-trunk live oak and layers of hills in the distance. I’ve painted this tree and view twice and have taken a dozen photos at all times of day and the constantly changing scene is a favorite.
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.
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.
