Valentine's Day at the Quiller Show
I cant think of a better Valentine gift than a Stephen Quiller painting. The next best thing however was the opening of his Italian Show on Saturday the 14th up in Historic Creede, Colorado. To see the entire show go to his website at www.quillergallery.com. Stephen Quiller is the premier water media painter, in the world - I think I can safely say that; and he is the consummate designer. This show represents his trip to Italy in '08 and it did not disappoint. We drove through snow and wind to arrive in the sunshine of Creede, which may be a little out of the way in the San Juans of Colorado, but it was so worth it. Known in the past for mining, Creede now actively attracts tourists to a beautiful part of Colorado and a lot of fine artists as well. February is a quiet time of year but the town makes the most of every opportunity; restaurants and shops open up for this occasion.
