This is the 5th of the plein air paintings that I did in the recent PAAC, Plein Air Artists of Colorado, Marathon paint out. From 12 noon until 2:00 we painted in Manitou Springs, which is a small town touching the west side of Colorado Springs. It's filled with old houses, charming stores, great B&Bs, mountain views and lots of people on a summer Saturday.
I drove over a few days before the event to scout out a location where I could paint and park....not easy! I loved the vine of roses growing up the front of the porch and the turquoise couch creating a spot of color. Luckily, when I pulled up to paint, there was a parking spot right nearby. It was meant to be.
