Sunset Over Buffalo Peak

Sunset Over Buffalo Peak
6" x 8" Oil on panel

I recently hung some paintings at Dream Pastries in downtown Castle Rock, Colorado which is just north of Colorado Springs.  Dream Pastries is a bakery, coffee shop, breakfast and lunch restaurant, and wedding cake venue which hangs art work on its walls.  No sooner had I hung the work than this piece sold.  You never know where the next collector might be.  For those of you who live in the area, stop by for a pastry,  they're delicious.  And, if you become a FB friend you get a free pastry or coffee!

Pam, I am not surprised this sold; it is beautiful. It captures all of the beauty I think of when I imagine Colorado (I've only been at the airport in Denver once on a small layover...).

A sweet treat for the buyer with none of the guilt!The clouds remind me of Maynard Dixon's work. Just right!

Debbi Smith Rourke said...

A beautiful sky confection. I can see why one of the pastry shop patrons would be especially attracted.
I always love you skyscapes.

Amy, thank you. Clouds always feel a bit abstract to me, so they are fun to paint!
