Colorado Mountain Plein Air Festival

This year my husband Carl Bork and I participated in Colorado Mountain Plein Air Festival. Carl plein air (outdoor painting) paints professionally. I really only plein air paint for fun and practice. Also here in the mountains by Salida the colors are starting to change especially the aspen trees so it is very lovely. Here are some pictures from this week.

My painting "Mountain Meadow"
This won a Business Award as well

My painting "Mountain Colors"
It was very cold, windy, and rainy the morning of this painting.

My painting "Aspen Grove"

This painting is from the first Paint Out called "Bridge in Late Summer"

This is my husband Carl Bork's painting. This also won a Business Award.

Here's Carl's painting from the first Paint Out

This is Joshua Been a friend and fellow painter. He's also kind of a big deal around here.

Carl is painting on his own little island.

Here are some pictures below around where we live and painted at:

They are from Telluride, CO but travel around the country to spread a message of peace.
