Mt. Wilson in Colorado is one of our hardest of the 14ers to climb.  Mt. Wilson is set about 10 miles from Telluride in the San Miguel Mountains.  I call these "long skinny" paintings my "layer" paintings as they are not part of a specific scene, but start with the subject matter at top and move down with different bits and pieces of things that are in and around the area.  These "long skinnies" are fun to weave things in as I move down the panel, imagining the feelings of standing within the scene and painting to highlight the joy of the moment!  "The Red Barn" is painted on MDF panel with cradled sides stained to compliment.  I use a water based stain on my cradles so if anyone would rather paint their sides it is an easy application!

I was asked to present a demo for another local art guild on my paper casting process.  It was a great opportunity to experiment with my casts a little more to see what else can be done with them...I've come up with a couple new things...stay tuned to the end result of those!  My goal was to incorporate the casts in fine art as well as crafts.  Remember that experimenting gives an artist great opportunity for growth! If you are in town and want to see the process it will be October 10 at 7 p.m. at the Rox Bar and Grille upstairs.  The Rox is just east of C-470 on Ken Caryl!
I created a collage of some of the work I've already done with my casts.  Happy memories!
HAPPY CREATING!

Your energy always leaves me breathless and admiring, Saundra. This piece came out beautifully!

Thank you Crimson Leaves! I am laughing, because I know a woman who does workshops all around the country, paints like crazy, is in multiple outdoor shows and STILL has time for relaxation stuff! I said the same thing to her! HA!

Great composition. The long skinny size is perfect for the subject. I like the hues too. Lovely piece Saundra.
