We just returned from Crested Butte Colorado where my work is now being represented by the beautiful River Light Gallery. It was an incredibly special experience because my family has a very long love affair with the area. My grandparents began exploring the area before I was even born! We have photos of my first vacation to Spring Creek Resort. I was a baby being bathed in the cabin’s kitchen sink! Charles and I got married by the banks of Spring Creek in 1981. And, now my brother and sister in law have a dreamy home nearby. This feels like a very surreal, full circle experience having my paintings hanging in a gallery right smack in the middle of Crested Butte!
What a bonus to get to hike amidst the Aspens that so inspire my paintings. There was something so special about exploring caves and deteriorating 1800’s miner’s cabins. The ground feels eerily sacred and fed my creative soul. Can’t wait to get into some paint to see what happens next!
Special thanks to Charles and Gretchen, my biggest supporters, for being there for every minute of the inspiration and celebration. And, to the super talented Mike Mahoney and the wonderfully welcoming Pam Mahoney for making me feel like I belonged with the talented artists at River Light Gallery. It was a weekend to remember!
