Quaking Aspens and Colorado Peaks II

Quaking Aspens and Colorado Peaks II
Original 30" x 40" x 0.75" painting
Golden, Liquitex, and Chroma acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvas

Today's work includes the newest edition of the Quaking Aspens and Colorado Peaks composition. I haven't revisited this composition in quite some time, and thought it worthy of a revival. This painting depicts a typical scene along the Colorado Peak to Peak Highway, an official Scenic Byway which runs from US Highway 6 near the historic mining towns of Central City and Blackhawk north to Estes Park. The scene depicted here is a common sight when the aspens change colors during the height of the fall season.

"There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them." --Anthony De Mello
