My visit to Crested Butte, CO was very beautiful and relaxing, Zen even. It reminded me a lot of Amsterdam. The people were relaxed, on their own time clock and there were cool bikes everywhere (Just like Amsterdam.) There were wildflowers all over and the hiking was serene.
I was fortunate enough to get a chance to paint while I was on this little visit but I didn't paint scenery. I was inspired by the calm funky relaxation of this tiny town and painted patterns. I felt good to put brush to paper while being outside. I might even turn some of these patterns into a licensing collection.
Here are a few pictures of my niece, the main reason I went to Colorado for a visit. River is 6 weeks old in this picture. She's cute, my visit was lovely and I got in some much needed relaxation. I can't wait to go back.
