Contemporary Rocky Mountain Art – Steamboat Springs, Colorado

“Yampa River Bend”, 2015

“In the arts there is a rhythm, and a cadence, and a doot, doot, doot. I have taken a balanced view of the interplay between art and science, and through this process I hope to help with human loneliness.”

– Carol Jean

Latest Work

Steamboat Springs, Colorado is a magical place, there is always something to paint. My inspiration is The Sleeping Giant (it is my Cezanne Montagne Sante-Victoire), the Flat Tops mountains, Rabbit Ears, the Yampa River, Zirkel Wilderness, Steamboat ski area, and all the people and events that we get to experience here. 

Sunset Happy Hour

Sunset Happy Hour is an event at the Steamboat Ski area in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. One rides the gondola to the Thunderhead Lodge, elevation 9080 ft. This is where you can sit on the deck, watch the sunset, dance to live music, and watch me paint to the music and energy of the day.
