This months “Last Friday” event (April 30) at Stoneheart Gallery in Evergreen Colorado is featuring Yours Truly as the main attraction for the evening. I’ve worked up five special paintings for the event from Elk Meadows, an open space area north of Evergreen.
The event title is ” Seasons in Elk Meadows “. The evening will run from 5 to 8 P.M.

I crossed paths with this lady and her companion at Elk Meadows one day this last winter when I was out there gathering reference material. She didn’t want too much to do with me but considering she was alone and I was alone I don’t blame her. Still she and her dog begged to be painted and this is what came from the encounter. Titled: “Companions” 12×9 inches
“Hikers On Elk Ridge Trail”, 18×24 inches, was from an earlier trip last year during the summer. I had been commissioned to do a piece of the barn in Elk Meadows with Bergen Peak in the back ground and it wasn’t long before I came to appreciate the beauty of the area and it’s paintableness. Is that a word? Probably not but it’s a wonderful place to go set up an easel and do a little painting. This was done from a plein air piece and repainted here in my studio. There are two more pieces finished in the series.
The barn is the subject of this last piece in the series. It’s “beeg”! At least for me as it’s 24×48 inches. I’ve been photographing as I go so I have a nice progression of the process. The image below is the fist stage of the painting. You’re gonna like this one. It’s nearly finished.
A couple of other pieces that will be on the wall. The snow scene is from Bear Creek just a way down the hill from Evergreen. The cloud is one our famous Colorado sunsets. Both pieces measure 30×40 inches. I think. 🙂
Any way!…You are all invited to come see us in Evergreen on the 30th of April. 5 to 8 P.M.
