When I get off of this mountain…

Up on Cripple Creek

I think this is going to be the inspiration for my first painting. I took it from the Narrow Gauge Railroad in Cripple Creek, Colorado – a town chock full of casinos and great views. I’m not sure what style I’m going to work in. Normally I tend to work pretty realistically, but I might try something impressionistic, or try to work in some more color.

This summer in Boulder I met a fantastic artist, Phil Lewis. I just love his work. I might try something along these lines…very colorful. Well, not quite like this, but I like this style. Very different from what I would usually do, but very cool.
