Original Colorful Fairgrounds Colorado Landscape "County Fair" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                         



Grand Junction, Colorado, has a typically wonderful small town county fair. I loved the bright, circus-like colors of the midway in front of the Bookcliffs. The air was hazy and full of the dust of the bull riding event.

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 Western Landscape Painting "Working The Release Pen" by Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                    

 A few years ago I was given permission to photograph the sheep handlers working the release pen at the Meeker International Sheepdog Trials. It was fascinating! I watched as the border collies and cowboys and horses wrangled the unruly Meeker sheep, gathering them, penning them, and releasing them for each sheepdog participating in the trials. Working the Release Pen won the People’s Choice award at the 2006 Meeker Classic International Art Contest.

Original Colorado Landscape Painting "The Palisade at Gateway" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

                                         

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.

Contemporary Wildlife Bird Painting "Fly North" by 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.

Original Colorado Landscape Oil Painting "The Old Loading Dock" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

                             



 When my husband and I bought our home this old loading dock was left on the property. For us, it’s a symbol of the days when it was still a working ranch. The hills behind it change their disposition and color throughout the day. This painting shows the land in midsummer glory.

Original Colorado Landscape Painting With Horse, Rider Sheep and Dog , "High Country" by Painter of the American West Nancee Jean Busse

I love painting the Meeker Sheepdog Trials. At the far end of the competition field the sheep wranglers release the sheep at the beginning of each run. That’s what this painting depicts. I love the colors of northern Colorado in autumn; brilliant sun on yellow fields, blue mountains, clear skies… Colorado at it’s most rare and beautiful!

Western Wildlife, Yellowstone Landscape Painting, "Elk Calf Study" by Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

This is a small study painted prior to a larger piece. I photographed this elk calf up in Yellowstone on the Madison River. This calf and 4 others were sunning themselves on a small island in the river, while only one cow grazed on the opposite bank. A few miles up the road, Grady and I saw a large herd of cows. I theorized that one cow stayed back to watch over the sleeping calves while the rest of the herd moved to a meadow with better grazing opportunity.

Original Raven Wildlife Painting "Violet-Contemplates-Mortality" by Colorado Western Landscape Painter Nancee Jean Busse







Another painting in the wildlife series I've been working on. This is a small 9x12 study of one of our resident ravens. I've been wondering about the raven we relinquished to DOW for rehabilitation, so I needed to paint a raven. This study depicts one of the ravens perched on the loading chute of the old corral out back. It's filled with the startling blue of a Colorado summer sky, which is reflected off of most surfaces. It's titled "Violet Contemplates Mortality,"
