52nd National Catalog


12” x 12” — Watercolor $675

Several years ago, wearied by the threats of Covid, political turmoil and global warming, I decided I needed to bring the calming effect of flowers into my life and work. Since then I have been painting Colorado gardens and the extravagant displays of wildflowers that appear every summer all across the Rocky Mountain Front Range. In addition to creating studio paintings, I am also making illustrated journals as I visit these places and documenting my growing fascination with both cultivated and native plants, their habitats and their crucial role in supporting Colorado ecosystems. The painting I have submitted for this show, “November Garden,” is of a rock garden in the Gardens on Spring Creek, in Fort Collins, CO, and a part of this ongoing series.
