Art for the Endangered Landscape show TONIGHT

This exhibition, and sale opens tonight, Friday, December 4th at Community Partnerships Gallery; on the Adams State University campus, right off Hwy 160 just west of the ASU Theatre in Alamosa.
The reception will be from 4 to 7pm.
After traveling to Pagosa Springs and Durango this exhibition finally comes to Alamosa.

Over 40 artists from all over Colorado are featured and even some from outside the state - all coming together with the purpose of raising awareness for endangered landscapes;  - and brought to us by the San Luis Valley Ecosystem Council.
Special THANKs to David Montgomery who brought it about and put it all together, and to the artists committed to supporting the effort to save "Endangered Landscapes" in our state.

Consider this a perfect place to do some Christmas shopping. There is something for everyone and proceeds go to counter development on Wolf Creek Pass.
Hope to see you there.

Live Model in Class - Woof!

 Last Tuesday night we were lucky enough to have a live model in class. Richard Luckemeier brought Gus who "sat" to be painted - actually he went to sleep, hence my painting of him snoozing at my feet.
The Tuesday night class has been inspired to paint animals- in the landscape, in abstracted forms, from scrap and from life.  I put animals in the "figures" category- right up there with portrait - always challenging - but like anything else, practice is what gets you there.
More about that later.
