The purple mountain majesty of Pikes Peak is always an interesting watercolor subject with its always changing light, shadow, and color. The Garden of the Gods monoliths in the foreground are a plus in this view. Other views, from the Woodland Park area are just as exciting.
The historic Manitou Springs Stairway which leads from Manitou Avenue to: NOWHERE! Perhaps it once led to a prominent building which is no longer there. To get this view, I had to paint in the median of the avenue on a Sunday morning when traffic was very light.
