Artist's description:

I rarely go through Colorado without stopping at Garden of the Gods. It is just a spectacular place with these red rocks standing on end in a forest of sage green. Its a very spiritual place; If you've never seen Garden of the Gods then add it to your bucket list. This 8X10 oil painting on a canvas board was inspired by a sunrise walk through the garden.

“Cairns, Stones and rocks", in the form of still-lifes, and rock-strewn landscapes in my most recent series of paintings. The inspiration to work with rocks comes from visits to the Lake Superior North Shore in Minnesota and western trip to Utah’s and Arizona’s Red Rock country where I would come across these beautiful “Cairns”, rocks stacked on top of each other, created and left behind by other creative rock lovers. I like to think many of my cairn paintings as collaborations with strangers I’ve never met.
