Walk through the foothills of Colorado in the fall and the world alights in yellow, orange and gold. This pastel painting was inspired by a walk through Bobcat Ridge Natural Area. Located in the foothills of Fort Collins, I return again and again for inspiration and the display of fall color as the leaves turn from green to orange, yellow and gold.

The “Twin Owls” rock formation is located in the heart of the MacGregor Ranch in Estes Park, Colorado. As part of a larger formation known as Lumpy Ridge, the Twin Owls can be seen from across the valley. Perched in their granite nest, the rocks harbor raptors and rock climbers. On a picture perfect fall day, the aspens have reached the height of their gold color. Each tree and leaf sparkles in the sun
