It's amazing how different your life becomes once you meet the half-way mark. The clock keeps ticking faster and faster. There just isn't enough time to do everything you want to do in your life. When you are young you don't think about it. It's count down and I want it to really count this time around.

Sprague Lake-Gouache on Watercolor paper
Spraugue Lake #1-$75 unframed
Well, I finally was able to start painting some of the wonderful scenes I experienced in the Rockies a few weeks back. This painting was from Sprague Lake just south west of Estes Lake north of Boulder Colorado.
My childhood friend Tim Siebert took me up to where he does some of his photographing and we got to share some of the beauty of the Rocky Mountains together. It was great fun and I enjoyed the day.
Tim and I attended grade school and high school together and I had not seen him for about 15 years until our 35th reunion last year. So it was a lot of fun catching up and getting to tag along with a great photographer to see and share artistic talents.
Thanks Tim for the great time and for showing me your favorite spots. They were breathtaking.
This is a painting I just completed-Gouache on Watercolor Paper-5 x 12.
