Original Colorado Landscape Painting "The Palisade at Gateway" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                                         

A beautiful palisade overlooks picturesque Gateway, Colorado. My husband and I hiked up a canyon behind Gateway Canyons resort on a fine autumn day and I loved the brilliant yellow rabbit brush against the red rock edifice.

Original Landscape Painting With Ducks "A Fine Autumn Day" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West


I loved this image! I took the reference photo of a pair of ducks swimming companionably under a golden tree losing its leaves. It’s full of rich golds, yellows, ochres and oranges.

Original Lake Powell Landscape Painting "The End of Davis Gulch" by Nancee Jean Busse Painter of the American West

                               


 Lake Powell is a magically beautiful place. The Glen Canyon dam was completed in 1966 in spite of the impassioned protests of environmentalists, naturalists, historians, and archeologists. There is still much controversy, and it is estimated that approximately 8% of the Colorado River’s water is lost due to evaporation and seepage from Lake Powell. Lake Powell is a popular recreation and houseboating destination now. My husband and I went to Lake Powell in 2008. We floated into the silent canyons on glassy, still water, thinking of what was beneath us. The skies were crystal clear and the night sky was black and filled with stars that were reflected on the still water. Davis Gulch is one of the hundreds of canyons in Lake Powell. This was where the final sighting of Everett Reuss took place in 1934.

Original Western Landscape Fine Art Painting "UP TOWARD MARBLE" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West



The road between Redstone, Colorado and Marble, Colorado is a breathtaking drive. You are surrounded by magnificent fourteeners , aspen covered hillsides, and golden meadows where horses, cattle, and elk graze peacefully. How could I not want to paint this?!

Original Western Landscape Fine Art Painting "CANAL AT VEGA LAKE" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West



Vega Lake State Park is in the high country of western Colorado. It's beautiful there year round, but it truly shines in September, when the aspens begin to turn and the air is crisp and smells of campfires and composting leaves. This painting is of a canal leading from Vega Lake, heading down the mountain to irrigate a vineyard or an orchard or another harvest bounty of some sort. I loved the building storm juxtaposed with the pale yellow aspen leaves.

Western Landscape Painting, Grand Canyon "WOTAN'S THRONE" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West



This is one of the more spectacular views from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. My husband I were there in 2014 with good friends. When I painted this I needed the comfort of painting something small and purely representational. It's like putting together a jigsaw puzzle; I put it together one small piece at a time! And it represents a wonderful memory of good times with friends.

Original Colorado Landscape Painting With Eagle "Uncompahgre Gold" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                         
When my painting studio faced south toward the Gunnison River I was able to watch waterfowl fly the canyon every day. Geese, ducks, herons, eagles, and sandhill cranes flew over that waterway and I enjoyed watching them every day. The eagles were always impressive!

Raven, Bird Fine Art Painting, Wildlife Art "THE SENTINEL" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West




I love painting ravens. They are such impressive creatures, and iconic of the American West. To those who ascribe spiritual importance to animals, Raven is a wonderful spirit guide, full of mischief and courage and hutzpah. I used a reference photo that I took about 15 years ago from a hike in Grand Teton National Park to paint this one.

Contemporary Bird Painting "Fly North" Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                                        

The painting was created for a show with a sandhill crane theme. I've painted many realistic images of the sandhills and for this show I allowed myself to create a few fanciful pieces; ones that relied more on my imagination that my photo references. What is it that signals birds to migrate? Most likely the length of daylight signals birds to flock and migrate. But in my flight of fancy I allowed myself to create a world where the birds are beckoned north or south by the activity of the humans who inhabit the planet with them. Maybe it's the sound of a combine, or the smell of freshly harvested crops, or the sound of a school bus chugging up the road. In this painting the cranes watch over us as they fly north to their summer haunts.
