The day before our ArtWALK the schools were closed due to almost 8" of snow on the ground from a heavy snowfall but Saturday dawned clear and sunny. It could not have been a more perfect day bringing record numbers of shoppers to the street. There was only one small disappointment - Sue McCullough was supposed to paint with me but when snow closed the pass her return to the valley was delayed - from Spain, yes, Spain (you will have to read about that on her blog).
I enjoyed the morning painting in a warm spot across from the San Luis Valley Brewery and spent the afternoon on the town, enjoying live music, food, friends and neighbors and over 30 venues with artwork.
I celebrated Spring by painting with no gloves.
The painting above as well as several other of my pieces will be hanging in the San Luis Valley Brewery until the end of April.
