Dome of Co capital

Went to Denver for work and nosed about the city for a few days. Standing a block away from  the capitol building with it’s refurbished gold dome, I grabbed a morning sketch before heading off to Meininger’s to put in several hours demonstrating at a terrific art store. Started by current owner Henry Meininger’s grandfather, the strore’s customers included Frederick Remington and Charles Russell. As I drew the golden dome that morning from my vantage spot by a bus stop on Broadway, I got to witness the comings and goings of a few of Denver’s street dealer’s in an open air exchange of the recently legalized herb.

Airport cabbie Capitol view

Got lazy and grabbed a cab ride with fellow artist, raconteur and long time amigo Franz Spohn from Denver International airport and rode into town with a clear panoramic view of the Rockies out the cabbies’ windshield. A couple nights later, went to an evening event at the Denver Museum of Art and took an hour to sit by a large window and cop a sketch of the capitol dome stretching above a wing of the museum.
