Summertime in Pagosa Country


Noisy Woodpecker on Jasper

If you go out in the woods today, you will hear the rat-ta-ta-tat of the woodpecker. It is a neat sound and once you hear it, you will always remember the song he sings. I painted this woodpecker on a stone called snowflake. It has long since sold, and I was reminded of it in my memory page on facebook..Since then I have painted this little fellow again, on different stone. We have them in our neighborhood and they come into the feeder for a treat now and then.





These are some of my latest paintings.

The red fox is on Chrysocolla stone and is approximately 3×4 inches.

The black bear was a perfect match for this unusual piece of agatized jasper and is also approximately 3×4 inches.

Picture Jasper was the canvas for an African scene in which I brushed in a pair of giraffes. Had fun doing this one. It is available at Damselfly Gallery  in Midway Kentucky. If interested contact me for information. Size is 8 x9 inches.

This is an interesting stone..jasper with an agatized strip which made me think of a mountain stream high above and grazing elk. Colorado Mountains are my inspiration for this piece. This piece is available at the Artisans market Steamboat Springs Colorado. This is an eclectic gallery composed of Colorado Artisans.

Last but not least, the Sacred White Buffalo of the Lakota Nation. Picture Jasper is the canvas. Size is approximately 5 x 7 inches.

If you are interested in any piece, contact me for pricing.

I have re-opened my etsy store …the link is below…will be having a new inventory posted and available in the next week or so.

I have a new venue in work is being presented by the Two Old Crows Gallery on Lewis Street. Do stop by..the gallery is lovely and Pat and Evelyn are the owners and are delightful ladies who love art. This gallery has something for everyone.

It has been a busy summer and I have been working the Eastside Market every Saturday in downtown Pagosa. It is a fun event from 9 am to 3pm. We have live music all day, and different folks entertain. Lots of good farm fresh veggies and honey, plus a variety of artisans from photographers, jewelers and other crafts folks. It is something Pagosa can be proud of.
