This is another painting from Bear Creek Park which is right next to my house.  I'm so lucky to live by such a great park.  It's almost 700 acres. I love walking it's trails.  I've painted it in every season.  I love watching the sunrise over the far hills.  It provides me with great joy as well as never endless landscapes just waiting to paint!

Keep On Truckin'

Keep On Truckin'
Oil  16" x 20"
$495.00 + $10. s/h
SOLD

I love painting old pickups.  The rusty, faded colors provide such atmosphere.  Often you'll be driving down a back road and see a truck parked near a barn, garage, motel (as was the case here.)  Sometimes there's an old truck just sitting in the middle of nowhere.  And, jackpots happen when you come upon an old truck junkyard!

This title is thanks to high school friend, Steve Morris.  He posted a comment on Facebook when I posted several truck paintings as part of the 3 paintings in 5 day challenge.

Bear Creek Snow

Our house sits next to Bear Creek Park here in Colorado Springs.  It's an almost 700 acre county park.  I don't know how many times I've walked it's trails, hundreds and hundreds of times over the years.  Our kitchen and deck over look the park and I've probably seen thousands of sun rises.  I've painted different scenes, both plein air and studio work, in all seasons.  I should go back sometime and count all of the paintings I've done of the park.  Here is a little snippet of Bear Creek from our snow last week.  Today it's in the 60's and most of the snow is gone.  On my walk today I tromped through melted snow....commonly called mud!

Winter Light

Every year I write a list of painting goals.  Two of the goals for this year are to paint more snow and to plein air paint in the winter....here in Colorado.  Plein air painting on our winter trips to the tropics doesn't count!!  To help with the winter plein air painting my husband gave me a pair of flannel lined jeans and my sister gave me a pair of fleece lined leggings.  I'm ready to go!

This was not done plein air....it's a warm up to get me out there!
