Crimson Reflections

It is easy to forget how big the state of Colorado really is. It seems to take forever to reach the far corners of my state. But 4 hours out of Denver in the south west of the state is a beautiful area surrounding the town of Creede. Sitting on the deck in a cabin just up the hill from the town, I sketched the wonder of these gorgeous cliffs.  Sunlight made them literally turn crimson in color. Red was just one of the colors found in these magnificent rocks; there was orange, purple, pink, and lavender. When I returned home I translated my sketch into fabric, paint, oil pastels and stitch.   $1,300
