The morning dawned bright and crisp as a Colorado day in June should.  After weeks of rain native grasses stood tall and dappled sunlight pierced a canopy of cottonwood leaves.  It was a perfect morning for plein air painting . . . one that would surely stimulate the creative juices of an artist.  I was helping to organize the Governor’s Art Show’s Plein Air and Auction event that was hosted at the beautiful and historic Osborn Farm near Loveland.  Fifteen artists, whose work was featured in the opening ceremony of the Governor’s Art Show the night before, fanned over the farm to find their muse and a beautiful painting.  After two hours, the Swiss bell rang and participants framed their work and hung them in the venerable, Osborn barn which served as an art gallery for prospective buyers to peruse the gem-like pictures.  At twelve o’clock noon, John Kinkade used his professional skills to auction each painting to happy buyers.
