The Return is in Sight

It has taken a few YEARS, but Studio Atelier will be re-activated in a couple of months. We have moved from our home of over 30 years and are beginning to settle into our new place. It's going to take several weeks to get my studio set up, and believe me it's long overdue. I can't wait to get warmed up and painting on several pieces that have been in limbo for months.

I hope you are having fun with your art. I'll be back in September.

We spent a couple of nights in Estes Park, located just outside the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park.  Estes Park holds festivals and is primarily a tourist town during the warmer months of the year.  It has a lovely river walk that was developed after the Lawn Lake flood swept through town on July 15, 1982.

Established by Congress in 1915, Rocky Mountain National Park hosts millions of visitors each year.  Its elevations range from 8,000 in the valleys to 14,259 feet at the top of Longs Peak (shown here). I hope you are able to experience this beautiful park during your lifetime.

Here we have an example of the diversity of the environment contained within RMNP - a valley filled with lush grasses and willows, slopes of evergreens, and the raw, rugged rock of mountain peaks.
