Eleven Mile Afternoon

Eleven Mile Afternoon
16" x 20" oil on stretched canvas
$495.00 + $20. s/h

This is from a recent afternoon fishing with my husband at Eleven Mile Reservoir.  Sometimes I stay on shore and paint and sometimes I go out in the boat.  This afternoon I was so glad to be on the water.  The reflections were incredible!

My plein air group, Garden Artists, is having our Fall Show Saturday, September 11 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm at Summerland Gardens in Colorado Springs.  There is an Opening Friday evening for those of us who show in the Garden Gallery.  Stop by if you are in the area.
