    I painted this piece on location during Telluride Plein Air (Colorado) over three afternoon sessions.  This is the alleyway right behind the main drag through town ... and beside the building is the extremely popular "Free Box." There, people come and go, leaving items for others to take and finding treasures to return home. 

    On each painting excursion, I really explore, looking for the spots that are less known and off the beaten path.  Telluride Plein Air is now in its 11th year so it's been painted a LOT.  The people who met me at my easel said that over all these years, they never saw anyone set up and paint this scene. 

    In addition to liking this spot's "story," I love the light on the rusted roof and the rugged nature of the building. My kind of place.

    Spring Bloom

    This painting reminds me of the years I lived in Tucson, AZ. The colors are spot-on for the way the desert looks after some rain. Lovely!

    A busy park full of people can still offer one a place to contemplate in solidarity. Love this!
