We are more than halfway through out artist residency.  What a honor to team up with our friends at Breck Create and live and work in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Emma and Isabella will be joining me February 15-19.

Here is a description of the Breck Create Artist Residency Program: 

The Tin Shop and Robert Whyte House provide opportunities for artists to live and work on the Breckenridge Arts District campus. Artists are invited to stay for periods of two weeks up to a month or more depending on program needs. Each facility features a fully furnished studio apartment upstairs and a low-tech working studio on the main level. Artists are selected based on the excellence of their work and public participation abilities.

Breckenridge is a family favorite of ours for day trips and vacations.  Whether you are up for a summer hike, skiing, or checking out the fall colors, Breckenridge is a gorgeous place to visit.  

Back in November 2016 I applied for an artist residency with the Breckenridge Arts District.   We were thrilled to be accepted to stay at the historic Tin Shop, living and creating our bright, colorful, upcycled, folkart.  

We will be in Breck from February 3-19.

When we left sunny NW Florida for even sunnier Denver,Colorado three years ago we left lots of family and friends behind.  The move was bitter sweet.

Art opportunities come in all shapes and sizes.  A few weeks ago Alan entered a Pabst Blue Ribbon art contest.  PBR has an annual contest in categories of 2D, 3D, and Can Art.  Alan submitted a 3D large trout pieces made from four different PBR bottle caps and vintage steel PBR cans.  Winners are chosen in February 2017.  

In the meantime Alan was invited by PBR Colorado to a local event called PBR Art Showcase in Denver.

We love making custom work.  Many owners/collectors over the years have come up with great ideas that we have had the privilege turning into beautiful, handmade, upcycled, folk art.

In our home studio south of Denver, Colorado we keep over 5000 vintage steel soda and beer cans in stock along with over 150,000 different bottle caps-old and new, domestic and import, some dating all the way back to 1915.

Each year Breck Create (Breckenridge, Colorado) posts a call to artists for their Artist in Residence Program.  Alan, Isabella, and Emma were accepted for 2017 and will be participating in their very first Artist Residency.  Tentatively scheduled for February 3-19, Alan (full-time) and the girls (part-time) will be living and creating in the historic Tin Shop (pictured below) on Washington Ave.
