I just received some very exciting news - I've been selected as Larimer County Artist of the Year for 2013!
As someone whose work is inspired by nature this is a particularly rewarding designation to have. An honor bestowed by the Larimer County Department of Natural Resources, the artist chosen is asked to create a piece of visual art inspired by a Larimer County park or open space which they will donate to the County. This artwork will then be celebrated and displayed for public viewing in a Larimer County building.
I've just been looking at the long and varied list of parks and open spaces, some I'm familiar with and others I look forward to exploring. Larimer County contains such wide and varied types of landscapes that I don't think there will be any lack of inspiration!
