I switched to other mediums like acrylics and watercolours and oil pastels, etc. But somewhere in the back of my mind, the thought was niggling ... give the Genesis a test. And so I did. Just a simple little piece of blue skies and wildflowers that made me think of my favourite place in the world - Mt. Falcon, Colorado.
There is nothing like the majesty of the Colorado Rockies and wildflowers and grasses talking to the wind as you sit and let God's love for His creation wash over you.
Its magical and heavenly.
This painting of Mt. Falcon is one I did many years ago now, based on a photo I took, when we still lived in Colorado. Cass, Mick, Max, and Mick's mom, Louise, had come out for a Holiday and we took a days outing up there and around Red Rocks Ampitheatre. Its such a lovely drive with lovely destinations.
The other two photos below were also painted from photos I took that day. Red Rocks was gifted to Cass that following Christmas. Max at Mt. Falcon was gifted to Mick that following Christmas. :-)

I'm very homesick for Colorado and especially my Rocky Mountains. I'm glad I have my paintings to warm my heart and remind me of happy times there. :-)
