Workshop photos: Ken Elliott and Casey Klahn at the Madden Museum of Art, Denver

Here are a couple of views from the 'On Color' Workshop that Casey Klahn and I taught July 20-21 at the Madden Museum of Art, Denver. It was a great two days in an incredible environment. The Museum gave us great inspiration and counter point to the works produced that weekend. Thank you all for participating. Keep your breakthroughs coming!

Newsletter, July 2013

All Over Sunset Study
Pastel on sanded board, 8 7/8 x 11 7/8
Currently exhibiting at the Madden Museum of Art, Denver, CO

From the Newsletter for July:

Summer in Colorado gives you an excellent opportunity to head for the mountains and get in the cool air. The Rocky Mountain National Park is a wonder and after a couple of days I went by the Ritz-Carlton in Beaver Creek and saw my works just installed in the guest room corridors. This week the Castle Rock, CO Adventist Hospital hung the large oil they commissioned for the 3rd floor lobby area and last week I was notified that my Taos Gallery, Total Arts sold one of my large pastels to a client in Spain. It feels good to see your works get out into the world.

I will have works exhibiting at the Sheraton Hotel, downtown Denver July 16 - September 7 and at the aBuzz Gallery, a group show with Mary Williams, Victoria Eubanks, Janice McDonald and Carol Ann Waugh, August 23 - September 14. 

This month I'm teaching a workshop with Casey Klahn that has happily sold out. Together we will have a great workshop with artists from around the country and teaching together at the impressive Madden Museum of Fine Art in Denver. That really raises the bar!

Ken will be teaching two day "Making it Fine Art Workshops' in Houston and Atlanta with others being formed in Denver, Austin, Cape Cod, Atlanta, Ventura County, CA and New York, 2013. Please inquire by email or 303-995-1611. information about upcoming workshops

Approaching Weather, oil on canvas, 36 x 60 inches

Just installed today at the Castle Rock, CO Adventist Hospital. Noyce Art Designs, is the art consultant on the project.

I originally saw this scene from a parking lot near my house. I had just moved to Colorado some 15 years earlier and I was stunned at the large view in front of me. I made a pastel that became a giclée print and years later, a small oil version of this view. I was thrilled at the prospect of doing this larger version as a commission.

When I first took the photograph, the landscape was for the most part undeveloped and that is reflected in the oil painting.  Presently, this hospital sits in the middle right-hand portion of the painting. I see this area almost every day and it's remarkable to compare the change represented by the oil and what is on the ground now. I'm happy for all the people who have now moved into that landscape and call at home as I do. It's also a great bonus to have such a huge hospital facility nearby for all of us.
