Well, this is it! Rick and I are cleaning, painting and freshening up the space at 140 Moraine Avenue in Estes Park. It was awful when we started, I thought, but in literally just a few hours, it started to look better. My husband is a DETAIL guy and loves to take things that are a bit worn and "draw them out" as he says, clean & polish them and make them beautiful. That's what he's doing with my store!
"I don't worry about the wounds. When I go up there, which is my intention, the Big Judge will say to me, Where are your wounds? and if I say I haven't any, he will say, Was there nothing to fight for?" - Alan Paton, Ah, But Your Land is Beautiful
Love never fails. - Paul, the Apostle
God seems to be far less concerned with where I'm going than with who I'm becoming. - Mark Batterson
Living in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado greatly influences me as a mixed media artist. For me, the Rockies are much more than granite and elk. The birds, the wildflowers, the smells and sounds cooperate and harmonize into something that soothes and settles the soul. Bring together the hard edges and the soft flutters, the dark shadows and the sparkling light, the strength of the bull elk and the delicacy of the lupine and you'll find the beautiful contrasts that move me.
