Painting the Ultimate Landscape

Raised by 24 people in 42 months
Throughout the centuries, landscapes have been one of the few things that have the power to take our breath away, shuttling us to a place of awe and wonder where the lines between reality and fantasy blend. As natural artists, mankind has spent generations refining the tools and improving upon the techniques used to capture the stunning beauty that can only be found in the natural wonders of this earth.

Imagine if you could help advance the way that the artwork of the future will capture the beauty of a new dawn and in doing so could support the growth of an aspiring artist and accompany her on a journey to capture the spirit of new worlds around us that we never knew?


The Mission: Capture the ultimate landscape.

The Setting: Colorado

Timing: March 3, 2015 – March 24, 2015

Sometimes, opportunities just fall right into your lap, and that is what this trip is all about: Having an opportunity and just going for it 100%.  Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. I am looking forward to sharing my incredible journey and experiences as they unfold through daily updates on my facebook and instagram, and I cannot wait to share the final painting with all of you.
