2nd Annual Art Retreat in Estes Park, CO - July 2017

The Painted Prism Art Retreat in Estes was great fun, with a small but enthusiastic group!

Getting into the spirit of Art Nouveau

Playing a painting game on the first night . . . 

Setting up for early morning yoga on the deck . . . 

Beautiful views from the yoga deck . . . 

Starting in on the first day's Tree Grid Project --

Here's me . . . 

 . . . and my partners in creativity, Mo & Cheri . . . 

Stuffed Poblano Peppers -- not too spicy, but oh so tasty!

Finding references for the 2nd day's project -- Orange Line Panting

Always time for a break

and even a selfie.

The rain forced us inside to paint, on two of the days, but we all managed nicely . . . 

Relaxing on the covered deck, after the last day of workshops . . .

The Tree Grid Sampler

The Orange-Line Paintings

The Art Nouveau Paintings

What a great time we had, in this beautiful place!

See you all next year!


  1. What a nice group it was!
    (And I learned so much!)

    1. It was indeed! Thanks, Cheri -- I couldn't have done it without you!

    2. Pat, you are an outstanding teacher. Had a great time in Colorado at the artist retreat. Learned so much, nice people, and beautiful scenery. Hope to come next year.
