Plein Air in Telluride

June welcomes the warmer weather in Telluride and an invitation from my dearest friend Julee Hutchison to join her for 10 days of plein air painting.  Julee is a fabulous plein air artist whose work has earned her numerous national awards and recognition. Her ability to capture the light and color of the expansive Colorado landscape and its natural inhabitants has made Julee a much sought after artist. It is a privilege to paint along side Julee and watch her confidently capture the beauty of her subject. A few of Julee's paintings can be seen below and her full portfolio can be found on her website at
