I have been invited to participate in the 2017 Cherry Hills Land Preserve Barn Party, an art auction benefitting the CHLP. The CHLP mission is to preserve open lands in Cherry Hills Village through leadership, stewardship, advocacy, and education. My painting, "High Line Shadows," is one of four paintings I have in the show. This painting portrays the High Line Canal, a historic trail and irrigation ditch, that winds through Cherry Hills Village and links many open spaces in the Village. Grand old cottonwood trees grow along the canal and turn gold in the Fall, providing a riot of color.
