Sleeping Seeds

This painting was inspired by a small valley west of Denver that holds enchantment for me at Bear Creek Lake State Park. It is close to my home so I have seen it in every season, weather and lighting condition. It is a quiet place where deer and other wildlife find solace, and where mountain bikers and horseback riders (and painters like me) trade in the city for the open meadows of the Front Range. The silver vase reflects the landscape around it and the mirror turns the cottonwoods upside down. I took several high resolution photos of this space while snowshoeing in January. I carried a large mirror and a silver vase as I hiked and gathered the yucca and milkweed seedpods, both native to Colorado. Completed in the studio, this painting took more than 80 hours from composition to final details.
