9 x 12 Original Pastel Painting by Margretta Smylie Perry
Dry Creek is a local open space area in the area north of Denver, CO. It is quite extensive, but this is one of my favorite areas. I tromped out in the snow one late afternoon to take photos, but when I saw the coyotes, I decided I'd better beat a hasty retreat! I hoped to capture the late afternoon and the very chilly weather!
This Colorado landscape is one of my favorite paintings. A pastel, it depicts a house that is part of an old, abandoned mining camp on Red Mountain Pass above Ouray, Colorado. Buried deep, deep in snow it looked to me as if it was sleeping.

I had the pleasure of demonstrating for the Palette Club here in Austin last Tuesday. This was my demo piece.
Thanks to all who attended, despite my suffering a bad cold it was fun to see your enthusiastic faces.
This is an unframed 25" x 19.5" pastel on sanded paper.
