Bolder Artists Show!

Last weekend, I was invited to participate in the Bolder Artists Show and Sale, which took place in a beautiful private residence in scenic Golden, Colorado.
I displayed 4 of my latest pieces: “Weightless,” “Doll Face,” “Red Rocks; Afternoon,” and “Hope.”
The setting was beautiful and intimate. The food was scrumptious. The conversation flowed, I met many new artist friends, my artwork attracted a lot of interest, and I had a wonderful time.
Here is how my display looked:

And here are the individual pieces:

My special thanks to Lori Gregory for inviting me to participate.

I really like the way 'Doll Face' looks framed. It's even more dramatic and compelling.
