Spring is in the Air

Hello all----It is officially spring ----I was in Colorado in late February enjoying the amazing vista views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains from 10 miles outside the small town of Westcliffe -----about 1 1/2 hours South of Colorado Springs----Tommy , Emma and I had a wonderful time-----We had great weather----hiked, painted, hiked some more, cross country skied, downhill skied, painted some more, relaxed and soaked up the mountain air and plenty of Colorado sunshine----There was even a little health food store to buy provisions of local grass fed beef, bison and elk, and organic produce in Westcliffe, which made me happy.

I did 6 or so new paintings and sketched quite a bit------so that also made me happy!
