As my first (and experimental blog post) I wanted to share some photos that I spent some time revamping a few days ago. I have been playing with Photoshop for the last few months and have learning how to adjust and crop images. I recently went back and revisited some...

Alex’s photography makes the San Juan Mountains come to life, for even those who have never touched foot in southern Colorado. His photos have brought new life to our website.
Alex photographed and made prints of one of my paintings for me. He nailed it on the colors! The subtle changes of tone in the blue water and the pinks in the sunset were perfectly replicated in the printed versions. Great artist, very timely, and most importantly, a pleasure to work with.
