Vail Mud Season ~ 9 x 12 Works on Paper Show ~ FWCAC

8 x 10 Acrylic on Illustration Board
On an April trip to Breckenridge, Co. with a side trip to Vail found little activity. It seems that April 23 was the first day of mud season when for a few weeks things close down for a face lift with store repair and carpets cleaned. The melting snow and higher rivers signals it's time to put away the skis and convert the inventory to bikes. The streets were easy to navigate and some street maintenance was in progress with a few stray visitors enjoying the cool, cloudy day. Most of the retail stores and restaurants were closed. I took this photo of this sparse scene and painted this popcorn stand without people to depict this time of year.
Vail Mud Season will be entered into the Fort Worth Community Arts Center's 9 x 12 Works on Paper Show and pieces will be due November 15. The work can be any size must it must fit into a 9" x 12" size envelope, unmatted and unframed and be priced at $100. Each artist is limited to 5 entries at $5.00 an entry. I plan to work on 4 more. The Reception and opening is December 8 and the show runs until December 29.
