Golden Moment, fall landscape


What an age we live in! The internet and email puts me in contact with people all over the globe looking at my work. Their encouraging comments mean so much to me. I feel so gratified and thankful when they plunk down their hard-earned money to own one of my paintings.

Today I met a collector (Kay from California) in person. Some people you just click with right away. Kay is warm, vivacious and with a great sense of humor. Our lives paralleled each other in so many ways. It's funny when you feel you already know someone you just met.

Kay was here in Colorado visiting her parents. She spent many years living in CO and now misses it so much. Golden Moment is a fall scene of aspens on the road to Cottonwood Pass west of Buena Vista, CO, - a little bit of Colorado for Kay to take home.

This is beautiful Carol! We don't get enough of the leaves changing color like this in my area.

Love the light on this one Carol and the colors are beautiful. Looks a little different than the last time I was up there. We were on snowmobiles on top of seven feet of snow! All we could see was the very top of the road signs. At the top of the pass it was like different world. Kind of scary actually! Take care. /Lee

What a beautiful painting, Carol. The colors are stunning, and makes me look forward to my favorite season AND hitting the road.

(Though, I'm not trying to rush the seasons by no means:)

Thank you all for your kind comments. This landscape is one of a group of about 10 I completed last November or so. Most are at Spirits in the Wind GAllery in Golden, CO.

You can also view them on my website. Thanks again.

Carol!

This landscape has an abstract feel to it (it must be from all the abstracts you've been doing!).

I love the intense colors. The purples on the road, the blue mountains, the bright foliage on the trees.

This totally screams Fall.

I bet Kay loves it!

Hello Carol, Just got home and have hung my beautiful painting in our living room. It has brightened the whole room and my husband Randy loves it too!
It was instant friendship between us and I thoroughly enjoyed our time together and all the laughs! What a truly fun afternoon!
Can't wait to see all you complete for the Denver show coming up. Best wishes for a successful sale!

Hi Carol,

The colours and hews of your Autumn paintings are wonderful, the sunlight coming through the trees brings the whole scene to life. I love it!
