The first Woodland Park Parks and Rec art camp has wrapped up, and I just wanted to share pictures of the wonderful week. We learned how to plan out a big project, how to collaborate as a team, and just how much paint it takes to fill up big spaces! Everyone made their own collapsible teepee (aka a mural you can camp in), and the camp made a triptych that will hang in the Woodland Park Aquatic Center when its topcoat cures. Thank you all! And a big THANK YOU to Colorado Landscapes LLC who not only provided the materials...
Columbine Elementary Masterclass Series 2018-2019. A whole school year done now, and I realize now that I did not take enough pictures. Or not enough good pictures to capture the experience. Well, I hope you get the gist. I love you, Columbine! Thank you for teaching me more than I taught you.
I’ve been cooking a lot, reading a lot about gardening and cuisine, thinking about spring, dreaming of Palisade’s orchards and vineyards, and feeling a whole lot of simultaneous melancholy and joy for the types of lives I admire. The common thread being that they are lives overflowing with life. These are this week’s freesketches.
It snowed— of course it snowed!— for Friday Night Creative Chill’s “Painted Flower Pots” class. In fact, it is snowing again while I write this! Good thing we expect these types of weather shenanigans here in Colorado, and also that we are prepared for when it finally decides to be planting season once again. Next month’s class is full with a waitlist, so if you haven’t already signed up for that one, give July’s offering a try. Thank you, Teller County!
Landscape season is starting to move and shake again, which means that most of the visual communication I have with the world right now is all about trees, boulders, shrubs, and patios. Now, my husband does the awesome actual design work (so... all the heavy lifting), I just translate his sketches into HOA-approvable/crew-completable plans. Anyhow, I thought I'd share a few recent plans so I could show how my "sketchbook" fills up at certain times of the year.
