Gallery Leonardo in Leadville, Colorado was kind enough to email this photo which shows a group of my paintings on display (for scale, please note that the two square paintings, the White Hollyhock and Italian Clementines are 36" x36" each). The gallery is located in the historic Tabor Grand Hotel, built in 1883-85.
The owner of the gallery, Michael LeVine, writes: "The space is amazing, AMAZING - it was originally the lobby of the hotel. It has a great entry way, the ceilings are 15 feet high in the gallery area, and in this area there is a sky light that is 45 feet long and 13 feet wide... if you have been to the Louvre, many of the galleries there have this type of lighted ceiling. When all is said and done - this space, as a gallery, (is) beyond the nicest in gallery Colorado - if not the west. Too many things to list - I could go on and on." It really is a wonderful space, with great art, the owner is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. If you ever pass that way, stop in and say Hi.
A note on Leadville: At an elevation of 10,430 feet, it's the highest city in the United States. The town began as a silver, gold, and lead mining community. Most of the buildings in the 70-square block Leadville National Historic Landmark District were built between 1880 and 1905. It's very popular in the summer with bicyclists and high altitude runners, and hosts the Leadville 100 Race Across the Sky. Map to Leadville
