The Peak and the Gods"

8 x 8 acrylic on canvas board  $70.00

One of a  kind sandstone formations, with a view of Pike's Peak behind it is magnificent and a gift to the city of Colorado Springs from the children of Charles Elliot Perkins, open and free to the public since 1909.  Garden of the Gods Park is 1320 acres in size. There are roads throughout the formations with a visitor center nearby. It can be seen from several spots in Colorado Springs about halfway up the mountain and was not involved in the Waldo Canyon fire, thank goodness, but it was close!  This is my interpretation without photo reference.  Not accurate, but stunning, tactile,  fleshy nonetheless, and poetic.
