San Pellegrinos & Lime

Denver Museum Residences Rooftop Terrace Garden

I was invited to paint atop an exclusive rooftop garden at the Museum Residences in downtown Denver.  I, along with a few other artists, enjoyed a catered lunch up there and then painted at our leisure for the afternoon.  I painted the above view of the radiant umbrellas and bold diagonals in the architecture and landscaping.  This property is adjacent to the Denver Art Museum which is an architectural marvel who's style elements are echoed in the Museum Residences property.

That evening, residents and some guests who are well connected in the Denver art world were invited up to watch us paint a quick-draw piece and enjoy great food and wine.  Our completed quick-draw paintings were then auctioned off.
