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!
