My son, who attends the University of Colorado, Boulder, recently sent me a photograph he took at dawn, from a Boulder County hilltop looking toward the flatirons. This photo was my inspiration for “Dawn Breaking on the Flatirons. I love how the wax droplets sugest stars in the early morning sky. He will soon be graduating and my visits to Boulder will surely diminish but I will continue to visit there and hike at Chataqua Park and other trails accessible from Boulder.
This painting is 20 x 30 inches (framed and matted it is 29 x 39 inches). I am starting a series of paintings that will be 8 x 10 inches in size, which will challenge me in the application of my wax.
