Just back from a week’s journey to Steamboat Springs, Colorado to visit with my niece, her husband, two year old son, and new baby sister. Delightful visit. While there, I arranged to have an extensive photo shoot of aspen trees for one of my next series of paintings. Love ’em. Can’t get enough of ’em. It’s a series I’ve longed to revisit after a number of years’ hiatus.
In keeping with a scavenger hunt for some of my work, I re-discovered these four paintings. The waterlily is tiny. A gift for my niece’s sixteenth birthday or was it her high school graduation? Forgot to ask her. It made a sweet addition to the laundry room.
The double koi pieces adorn one of the guest bathroom walls. These are early pieces circa 1990’s.
Lastly, the largest one, a 40×50 inch sunset, was inspired by a trip to the Caribbean (Aruba). It found its way to a wall opposite my bed in the guest room. Awaking with its warmth each day held me under the covers a bit longer before I ventured out into a crisp Fall morning.
