Criminal Beauty


There’s nothing like enjoying the lesser known, breathtaking areas in and around your city. The views are even sweeter when the place you are enjoying is no longer open to the public. I painted this piece in hopes of evoking the sense of smallness one feels as they gaze up at the towering walls and spindly trees that envelop you in Queen’s Canyon in Colorado Springs. This is, to date, one of my most favorite places in Colorado Springs and I hope you can feel the joy and wonder it brings me in this piece.
