Where the Wild Things Grow

During a trip up the Cache la Poudre Canyon, I came across this field filled with aspen trees.  Although I wasn’t able to paint it that day, I knew a return trip was in order and soon the opportunity arrived.

Upon my return, the small aspen grove had filled wildflowers.  As I set up my easel and began to paint, I felt as if anything could stumble up out of the river or through the grove of trees.  While it would most likely be a deer, I couldn’t help but think of the children’s book, “Where the Wild Things Are” and my imagination went wild.

Golden Owls

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

A-Maze-Ing

Rocks pile and tumble against the alpine blue sky of Wyoming.  From a distance, the rocks appear to be building blocks for a giant toddler.  Here they sit, forgotten in the eons of time.  Contrasted to the hard, sharp rock, aspens dance in the breeze, their golden fall colors warm and bright.
