Colorado Indian Summer with Blue Skies, Warm Days and Crispy Evenings..

August flew by with gardening, canning, painting and getting the wood in before winter.

I have been painting and doing some new pencil sketches which are featured on my Etsy Store at along with prints of my original stone art work.

This is a new piece I did for the Denver Gem and Mineral Show. It is painted on stone called Seraphinite which comes from Russia and is usually associated with jewelry. As you can see, this stone is iridescent and has angel wings thoughout. It was a delight to paint on.

 This piece is painted on Amethyst Sage of two bull elks locking horns in battle. Hunting season has started and the elk will soon be in rut. This piece was sold at the Denver Gem and Mineral Show.

Loved this stone..have no clue what is is called, but made the perfect canvas for this Rainbow Trout.

This New Mexico Wolf   is one of my pencil sketches and is available in 5×7″ prints, matted ready to frame, or framed in Old Barn Wood.  Sometimes as artist’s we need to have a diversification and I have gone back to the pencil from whence my art career started.

 While out cutting fire wood, the chipmunks were everywhere…so what would be more appropriate in pencil than these two busy little critters. Available in print …5×7″ matted, ready frame, or framed in Barn Wood.


Thanks for letting me share my art with you …I pray you all have had a great summer and are enjoying the fall season with its colors and changing landscape.

My work is shown locally here in Pagosa Springs at Southwest Elegance and Cowgirl Traders in Durango next to the train depot. Be sure to visit my etsy store at I will be adding new art work weekly..
