Crested Butte, Colorado

My family and I vacationed in Crested Butte, Colorado a few weeks ago - what a gorgeous town and area to visit. The vacation was primarily for skiing but I did manage to get into town late one afternoon, specifically to take reference photographs for future paintings. The town is a historic mining town and it is very "paintable"; everywhere you look there's compositions and character.

I visited Shaun Horne's gallery named Oh-Be-Joyful Gallery. I've been following his career and it's a class act. The gallery is wonderful and his large, plein air work is very well done.

Here's a photo of us on the Crested Butte Mountain!
