New Painting – April 25, 2012


Gothic, Colorado

Winter in GothicWinter in Gothic


After much encouragement Bob left New Mexico behind and looked to the Colorado mountains for his latest painting. The inspiration came from a photograph son Eric took on a cross country ski trip to Gothic this winter. Eric's Gothic Photo 2012

Gothic is located 8 miles north of Crested Butte, CO. A silver mining boom town in the 1880s, Gothic faded to ghost town status. Today the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory populates Gothic in summer for research and education about high-altitude ecosystems.
