This was at the Heil Ranch near Lyons. I've been trying to do some plein air studies in the area in preparation for a larger painting, but every time I get over there, it rains. I've had a bit of luck just recently though.
This painting from February is available at Brushstrokes Gallery, 1059 South Gaylord Street in Denver. It is a part of a show entitled: "First Bloom" - the Daily Painters of Colorado's inaugural juried show. I was really impressed with the Studio/Gallery when I dropped off the painting. It's run by three very talented Denver artists, and it's in a really cool area just east of Washington Park that I didn't even know existed. There is a one block stretch of Gaylord street that is just full of really interesting galleries and restaurants surround by that cool old Wash Park neighborhood - if you've never been there, it is certainly worth the trip.
This is Coal Creek that runs through Louisville and Lafayette, Colorado. It's only started to rise, but with the snow-pack we have this year, it's gauranteed to get a lot higher. Our prayers go out to everyone elsewhere around the country who are having to deal with too much runoff already.
