Last week, I had the great pleasure to visit Tony’s Happy Apple Orchard in Penrose, Colorado, with the Pikes Peak Plein Air Painters - a very cool spring morning, but all was lovely. This painting was completed on location in the orchard, with the delicate scent of the blooming apple trees filling the air. A great day to be alive, and to be a painter!

A special Thank you! goes out to L. G., for being the first collector to purchase a painting from my blog - "Coligny Windows" will now reside in Hot Springs, Arkansas - Thank you!

I welcome your comments - and thank you for your interest in my paintings.
