Bear season has arrived in Pagosa Country. This painting is on a small piece of Jasper and lent itself nicely to  the Grizzly who was just checking out the scenery. He is painted with acrylic paint, sealed with clear coat and comes with a wrought iron display easel. Size is approximately 4×5 inches. Price is $50.00. Contact me for payment and shipping  arrangements.


Mid Summer? Rocky Mountain High

Summer has been a bit unusual this year. Garden is slowly starting to grow due to lots of rain and cool temps…still wearing sweats in the morning. I am not doing shows this summer as my husband is semi-retired and we are using our 5th wheel (Which we bought in April ) to do some fishing and camping out. I am getting some great photos to work from so I have been keeping busy. Here are some of my latest works….

Wolves were the object of my pencil work of late..size framed is 11×14″. Enjoyed doing them as the pencil allows you to create the softness of the fur and capture their elegance .


Photo below is my studio on wheel..lol..it is really fun to go out into the forest areas and relax and watch and photograph wildlife. I usually take my sketch book and pencils to work with, but after our first maiden voyage, I discovered I can paint on the rock, work my pencil drawings and run a way fishing..Life is good.

Syl’s Echoes of Nature July Wrap with Art Show Pagosa Country

With two shows under my belt for summer, I will showing at the Quality Inn in Pagosa Springs.  The shows this year have been wonderful, and they are all fine art and crafts created by some of the finest artisans in Colorado.

I have a new line available now, prints of my paintings on stone, matted and ready to hang in hand crafted barn wood frames made by local craftsman Richard Sutherland.

  This White Buffalo is painted on Picture Jasper and is available in print 5×7″.

Picture Jasper is the canvas for these buffalos and is available in print 5×7″.

This is a new piece I just finished painting on Petrified Wood. The design of the stone frames this buff in lightning strikes. Also available in print 5″x7″.

Look forward to seeing you at the show..
