Another plein air field trip to LaVeta and the Miniature Show opening reception at the Spanish Peaks Arts Council Gallery (SPACe).
Actually, we got a little sidetracked, first at the Ricky Tims Quilt Gallery (Ricky Tims, internationally famous quilter, who coined the phrase 'Caveman Quilting'), then at the LaVeta Fine Art Gallery on Main where we met and talked with Bob and Connie Buckner. Bob is a wonderful artist- check out his website at www. robertbuckner.com.
He is also a member of SPACe, so we all met back at the SPACe gallery to see a demo with Vicki Barton a watercolorist from Westminster, Colorado. Everyone gained something from watching Vicki create small gem-like watercolors from nature, with an emphasis on good design, freedom and fun with less stress.
