en plein air...

what could be better on a sunny, crisp and cool day in victor, co than taking a little break in our old bouncer lawn chairs.  we could've sold them 10 times over, but some things are just downright sacred.  these belonged to my grandma and grandpa and were on their front porch as far back as i can remember.  seems like i even have a picture of one of them holding me as a toddler in them.  be sure to take note of the wagon in between them and the old sign in the window as you view the  next picture.

the wagon with buckets of flowers and old boots was the item of interest to one of the VCTA artists in this years en plein air competition.  although it didn't win a prize with the judges, it certainly won 1st prize with me and is now hanging in my office!  if you've never attended this great art show, put it on your schedule for next labor day.  artists from all over the country come and paint within a certain radius of our old city hall.  victor has some of the most beautiful, original turn of the century archetecture of any old mining town you could find on the map.
