Many of my Original Paintings have interesting back stories.
I also began to realize that some of my paintings were simply meant to be. More stories to come!
Back Story: Aspen Glow:
I have sold quite a few Aspen Glow paintings. The back story behind one of them is kind of a funny/spooky one.
My husband and I were in Aspen for a weekend get away. We drove along a windy road lined with glowing, gorgeous Aspen trees. I asked him to pull over so I could get out and take photos. He stayed in the car, and I walked around taking photos for references. After about 10 minutes Mike showed up in the car, rolled down the window and said, "Jay! Get in the car!" I couldn't figure out what it was. "Okay, just give me a minute."
"No, get in the car right now!" So I did, and he sped away. "What is it?" I asked. "This is so creepy...someone has taking dozens of naked baby dolls and pinned them to the tree trunks with knives, with a sign, 'Stay away, No Trespassing!'" I told him I had to see it for myself. So he drove me back there and sure enough it was true.
Stay Tuned, there are more to come!
