Durango, Colorado with the "La Platas"


I’ve been trying ot copy a blog I did about this painting back in 2009.  I love this piece.  I Adore this little painting I created one year for Christmas gifts to family and very close friends.  It was fun and inspiring to paint each scene the same, yet different.  I love painting again. And this little guy has become a fast favorite on my Store on Esty

early California poppie painting

this painting came about cause I had never seen California Poppies before.  I grew up in Missouri and moved out west when I was 19 (I’ve never looked back).  I got married young started having children and then we bought a home west of Durango, Colorado in a tall deep valley called Lightner Creek.  I was so excited to see this yard and what might be planted here, but I had to wait.  The day we moved in was Thanksgiving of 1983 and the snow was so deep that year we didn’t see the ground again till spring. When it was warm enough, I was out the door and diggin’ in the Earth.  Well out front of this house were all these little weeds and I started pulling and pulling and pulling some more, but there was no end in sight.  I had just had my baby daughter in Feb and I had a nineteen month old needing my attentions at that time so I never got around to pulling all those little pesky weeds out of that front bed.  And boy am I glad I didn’t, they were the most glorious little bright orange flowers I had ever seen.  I was so mesmerized by their transparant qualities that I just had to try and capture them on paper.  and this is what I came up with….. this was the real start of my learning watercolour.

I’m getting ready for my mini road trip to ABQ and then up to Durango with my daughter to help pack my son up for his move  north to Washington, so I should be totally estatic, but there is just some sort of something going on.
