Mt Evans

Here on the front range of Colorado we get a good view of Mount Evans - it is especially pretty when it is covered with fresh snow like the picture today. Besides being a 5 pointed image - thus the star in the middle - I tried a water color effect in Photoshop. The golden star is made up of the cottonwood trees on the ground and above each arm of the star is a 'watercolor' rendition of Mt Evans. Hope you can see it! Here's hoping for a better year in 2017!

Merry Christmas

Everyone have a wonderful holiday! Am headed down to see the Blossoms of Light at the Denver Botanic Gardens tonight and I've got my first Christmas Card in the mail. Enjoy the season!

Alcohol Ink Star

Am posting several images in succession so I can order my annual 'blog book'. It gives me a sense of having accomplished something to hold a book in my hand - to say this is a record of my year long art work. Hope every one else enjoys my circles as much as I do! Alcohol Inks are fun to work with - I like the way colors interact with each other before they have dried. Just for fun!

Almost Christmas

Was looking for my Christmas Mandala when I found this bromeliad cross - I liked the subtle colors and the way they blended together. We survived a -2 last night. Brrrr
