COLORADO LANDSCAPES

My goal as a painter is to create paintings that glow with light and rich luminous color. I try to capture my sense of  a place and interpret it, rather than just copy how it looks.  I seek out interesting patterns and rhythms, visual poetry.

Much of my work is painted en plein air- outside, onsite. In this photo I am painting Sunlit Cascade, a small waterfall near Mt. Evans in Clear Creek County.  Other pieces are started onsite and finished in my studio. Winter scenes are frequently painted from inside my Subaru. Some paintings are inspired by photographs I have taken.                                                                     Photo by     Wrenn Boulton
