Salida Art Walk
A view of a side alley in old town, Salida, CO. Last weekend I took a jaunt up to Salida for the annual Art Walk and joined up with a couple of fellow art lovers and explorers. We had a great time seeing all the tremendous talent, visiting with the locals and enjoying the carefully restored turn of the century homes. Great little town with lots of character & charm, although a little pricey with their real estate. The Arkansas river flows through town. As we enjoyed our lunch at the BoatHouse Cantina, kayakers were playing in the water below. I may try to show during the next year's art walk, a different venue for me.
I have always lived along the Rocky Mountains throughout western Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. I am thrilled to still be able to live next to the San Juan Mountains on the western slope of Colorado where I have a wealth of beautiful imagery to choose from. When not painting, I spend time with my husband, 2 Jack Russells and enjoying my gardening and backyard wildlife. Creativity and fine arts has been a driving force in my life since childhood. I earned a Bachelors in Fine Arts from Colorado State University and since then have taken numerous workshops under professional artists including Jill Carver, Leah Gusterson and Mike Simpson.
