buy art :: be original

Hirundo Rustico SM

Hirundo Rustica Colorado Rockies, papier collé and gold leaf, Nadine Sage :: $75, available at the FAC Museum Shop

The vision of the Colorado Originals Program at the Colorado Spring’s Fine Arts Center Museum Shop is to make collectible, contemporary, Colorado-made artwork accessible to patrons {seriously, the prices are extremely reasonable}. It’s time to start buying original art … it’s affordable and it’s oh so better than a poster that everyone and their brother has.

in the studio :: a portrait of a Bavarian woman


Having lived in Bavaria for several years, this portrait of a woman from Southern Germany (ca. 1520 -1525) has captivated me. I’m excited to be including her in my next papier collé.

> For years I have wanted to incorporate gold leaf in one of my pieces, I believe now is the time. stay tuned.
