To continue on with showing you some of my commission pieces.................

"Keyboard of the Winds" was painted for a lady in Loveland, CO. Ths is a mountain range in Rocky Mountain National Park (13, 215 ft above sea level ), which consists of Longs Peak, Keyboard of the Winds, and Pagoda Mountain. They are a beautiful frame for Mills Lake below.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings
Nature's place will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will bless their own freshness into you, and the
Storms their energy while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

Commissioned painting

Kevin's Cathedral, Colorado was a piece I did years ago for a dear friend of the family.

Kevin loves to live where its cold........Colorado, Washington, Alaska, (Fairbanks, Kotubue, Anchorage), Wyoming, Montana. He can't stand to be warm in any way. He even carries a portable fan in the trunk of his car to set up wherever he is that is beyond his comfort level.

This painting is from a place in the Colorado Rockies that was special to Kevin when he lived there. He would never reveal the exact location, just gave me pictures to compose it by.
