As cute Colorado towns go - Creede is right up there, high in the San Juan Mountains, set against a dramatic canyon background. Creede has been named as one of America's 100 Best Small Arts Towns and I will be painting there this weekend at the Taste of Creede Fine Arts Festival and Auction. Some of the best artists in Colorado are making Creede their Memorial Day destination for a weekend that also includes the Silver Chef Cooking Competition.
Sunday at 1pm, in front of the Steven Quiller Gallery there will be some "Quick Draw" action - which is how artists wow the crowds by painting something amazing in about and hour. The rest of us paint frantically and try to get away without getting hurt. It's a fun time for everyone and the paintings are auctioned off afterwards.
Call the Creede Chamber of Commerce at 719-658-2374 for more information and I hope to see you there.
