LOTS OF GORE "Y" FUN!...and PROUD!!


Playing with images of Gore Mountains in Colorado.

A while back I had someone ask me to do a painting of the Gore range in the same manner as I did "Colorado Layers" and "Nebraska"...only BIG...well...there was no commission, and I am playing with different images that I might put in a long skinny (as I call them).  The size I'm doing this on is like these two...apx 24" x 6" on MDF cradle.  If I like what comes out I may do a larger one for the collectors if they decide they want me to do a big piece.

The Gore Range (elevation approximately 12,000 ft) is a mountain range in the Rocky Mountains of north central Colorado in the United States. The range runs for approximately 60 miles (100 km) northwest-to-southeast, through western Grand and Summit counties, and eastern Routt and Eagle counties. If I could pick a city that you would recognize that is near a part of the range it would be Vail.  So...of I go on this little challenge.


My most wonderful son Jonathan, who lives out it California is training to hopefully make it to Calgary in a few months for another world Skatebording championship. The last one he competed at he won 6th in the world in his Freestyle Skating division.   I saw these pics on his facebook over the weekend of him training...He is so talented and has unique tricks...I'm ever amazed and EVER proud!!  YOU GO JONATHAN!!  This is HIS art form...


HAPPY CREATING!!

Jonathan is absolutely amazingly gifted and oh so skilled! I so admire his talents as well, mom. These two "long skinnys" are beautiful! Love the platform size, and the depth it brings to a unique style of Saundra Lane Galloway!
