Sawhill Ponds near Boulder 12x16 pastel
(Aubergine pastel ground on Masonite)
This past Sat was a paint out with the Pastel Society of Colorado. Blue skies, cool breeze, good friends. This time of year has some wonderful advantages. Being able to get out and enjoy the opening up of the senses as nature starts to bloom all over the place. Bug in the air tells me that I better keep my fishing pole handy.

Homestead Trail head Castlewood Canyon 11x14 oil
What a beautiful day. Cool and warm at the same time. The canyon itself was kind of claustrophobic because the scrub oak hasn't started to bud yet so we went back to the entrance and painted this old stone building. It probably has some interesting tales to tell. It will be fun to return to this area when the spring green starts to bloom.

O Fallon Park Outhouse
11x14 oil plein air
It was forecast to be a warm and windy day and it was. Luckily I found a spot where the wind didn't make painting a headache. It was instead, a fun spring time hike and outing. I am not sure why I chose to paint an outhouse but it was kind of fun.
