Welcome Home MARS! Colorado is now my new Home Sweet Home! I have finally realized my dream of almost 48 years! In the summer of 1974 I traveled cross country to Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. I fell in love with the Rocky Mountains, and always knew one day I would live somewhere in Colorado close to the Majesty of the Mountains. I have on so many occasions attempted to move here, but for whatever reason, the Universe was not in alignment with my dream until now. This time it was so divinely orchestrated I still have to pinch myself as to how it all came about so harmoniously. I have lived here almost one month, and already have enjoyed many adventures, Labyrinth walks, and find myself constantly gasping at the glorious beauty of the snow covered mountains so close by. I have strolled through The Majestic View Park, the Sculpture Field at the Arvada Center, followed the road west to see amazing sunsets over the mountains, and taken some lovely neighborhood walks in the many green spaces nearby. I feel as if my whole world has suddenly opened up, and everything that I have always dreamed of is now at my fingertips. There is so much to explore, so many nearby cities to visit, and so many cultural activities to partake in, the list is long and the excitement in me is palpable.
I created my first digital painting of “Colorado Purple Mountain Majesty” living here in my new home, on the first day of Spring, inspired by the beauty in Arvada, Colorado. I am so excited to experience all the seasons here, and am very grateful to have all these many opportunities ahead of me.
