Boulder Creek

"Boulder Creek"
Image Size 8" x 10"
Our son got married about a week ago in Boulder Colorado.  His new bride is wonderful and we're so happy to have a new daughter added to our family.  

Boulder has been one of my favorite places since I first visited while our daughter was attending college there.  The school is beautiful and the town has a nice kind of hippy vibe.  It's also very dog friendly and the people are very welcoming.  The 'Flatirons', the hills lining one side of town, have interesting rock formations and lots of trees.  I found this scene while driving to the wedding venue.  Boulder Creek runs from the hills and through the town.  The wedding was held next to this creek, but farther into the hills.  

This is a palette knife painting.  I haven't done one of these for a while and it felt good to use this technique again.  Spreading the paint with the knife is very calming and fun.


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Tous mes voeux de bonheur à votre fils et sa compagne...

    Cette oeuvre a une belle histoire... j'aime beaucoup comme vous avez travaillé la roche.

    Gros bisous ☼

  2. It will be a good memory of a wonderful weekend. Very calm just like the setting of the wedding.
