My plein air piece is an 10" x 8" oil on board painted in the Golden Horseshoe open space in Breckenridge. The red trees are symbolic of the pine beetle infestation in the Rocky Mountains where many of the peaks are no longer green, but the red/purple/brown of dead trees. But baby lodge pole pines are growing under the dead ones and huge tracts of aspen are popping up everywhere. The wild flowers are also glorious now that they are getting more sun.
All the paintings produced in the three day Art and Wildflower Celebration will be shown (and sold) at the Carter Museum in Breckenridge tomorrow from 5:00 - 7:30 pm. Prior to that they can be seen at the Fuqua Stables on E. Washington in Breck. For more information on the exhibit and sale go to www.cdlt.org
