Old Town clock
This was done in fall on location as part of the Art on the Avenue event in Old Colorado City. I sold it at my Annual Studio Sale. My favorite pieces usually sell first, and its a wonderful affirmation to have this happen. I had to move the mountain (Pikes Peak) to fit it in the scene, which meant I had to move my easel and use several on-location references to accomplish the desired effect. Plein Aire painting is the best for lighting and even though the light changes quickly, it gives you the accuracy for color notes that really make the scene shine. Colorado light is brilliant, and fall colors are spectacular!
