Fresh Off the Easel - "Heaven on Earth"

Just wanted to reach out and let you know I'm doing a Live Facebook Stocking Stuffer Art Show and Sale, Wednesday, December 16, at 7pm (CST). This show will feature a number of small paintings with a Colorado theme.


This painting, "Heaven on Earth", was inspired by a photo taken by Kari@anchorandkeyphoto from one of her many hikes around Breckenridge, Colorado. I reached out to her last summer for permission to use her photo of the wild flowers blooming in the spring for a future painting. She graciously said ok. I finally did a small study, which will be featured in this show.

Recently, while watching a very interesting live Instagram presentation on mixing colors by a very talented artist Nikki @nikkinienhuis.art, I learned she was making a donation from sales of her art to a family who lost their home in one of the devastating Colorado fires. I reached out to her to learn more and discovered this family was from Granby, Colorado.

I will also be making a donation from sales of my paintings from the Stocking Stuffer Art Show and Sale to Lindsey, Rich and Eberley Morrow. If you would like to learn more about the Morrow family, here's a link to their Go Fund Me Page.
