Red Mountain Shadows

Red Mountain Shadows
10x14, matted to 16x20

In my last post I displayed a 4x6 watercolor sketch that I had done from a photo taken during a snowshoeing trip up on Red Mt pass last year.  Above is the larger painting that I just completed.  Below is the latest bag that I made for my close friend, Sandy, who is an avid birder and naturalist.  We spent a year together on the Navajo Reservation in VISTA (volunteers in service to America) back in the late 60s.  Happy Birthday, Sandy!!

I found some great fabric, beads and charms for this bag when we were in Sedona in February

This photo is from a snowshoeing excursion up on Red Mountain Pass last winter 

Here we are moving toward spring.  Yesterday it snowed, today it rained.  Last week we were enjoying the sun and red rocks of Sedona and this week we are enjoying the changing moods that happen each day in Lovely Ouray.

This is a 4x6 sketch that I rendered of the above photo
I am working on a larger rendition
