I had never been to Estes Park, Colorado before last weekend.   It is a beautiful place with bare rock mountain tops, pine forests and Elk roaming freely through the valley.    Last weekend also happened to be the peak weekend for seeing the Aspens in their glorious golden fall colors.

“Blue Door/Taos”               12″ x 9″               Pastels

From Albuguerque we drove north through Santa Fe and Taos and then up through southern Colorado by way of smaller country roads, very beautiful.   What I saw in this part of the country seemed to call for pastels.

I have been out west for the past few weeks.   One of the first things I did was take a road trip traveling through southern Colorado to Albuquerque for a conference.   While in Albuquerque I did some quick sketches of the  surrounding views and a few of the people at the conference.
