Mounted Police - 16th Street Mall - Denver

I wanted to share this painting with you even though it's not quite finished. I will be showing it at Great Western Art in August. I have always enjoyed seeing the mounted police patrolling in downtown Denver. I plan to include them in some future pieces and will post them at a later date.

Historical Democratic National Convention Painting/Poster/Giclee'

The owner of Great Western Art in downtown Denver, Colorado, Hilliard Moore, asked me if I would be interested in creating a poster for the upcoming Democratic National Convention from a historical point of view since I paint scenes in downtown Denver on a regular basis. I agreed to come up with my personal concept. Since the convention was held in Denver in 1908 at the City Auditorium, a half a block from Great Western Art on Curtis, I thought it was an interesting project. As you can see from the photograph of the painting, I also painted the Pepsi Center where the convention will be held in 2008 in August. If you have an interest in the original painting, it will be shown in August at Great Western Art and posters and giclees will also be available through the gallery. Their phone number is 303-396-2787 and the gallery is located at 1455 Curtis Street. The convention will be an exciting time in Denver!
