As promised here is a little video of the first of two of the commissions on blue. This is 54”x54”. hard to get it all in in 60 seconds but did my best!! I had so much fun on all four of these pieces and I am just thrilled with the results. They will be delivered February 3 and installed on the 4th. I will try to video the second blue one tomorrow:) #aspentrees #denverartgallery
“Colorado Aspens” watercolor By Veronica Gross
Probably my favorite aspen painting of all time!! “Standing Strong V” 45”x38”x1.5” Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas This painting is currently available. DM me for details or follow link in bio to Winter Aspens 2018-19 album
I wanted to share a video of closeups one of the four large commissions I’ve been working on for Ocean Prime restaurant in Greenwood Village,Colorado. These pieces have been approved by the buyer and will be installed in a little over a week. They are all 54”x54” squares. I am just thrilled with all four of these pieces. The two on brown will be in one room and the two on blue in another room. I will share videos of the other three soon:)
TBT to this gorgeous engagement shoot on that key September weekend when all the Aspens are in perfect bloom 🙌🏻.
Another detail shot from one of my current Aspen commissions. I am so loving these pieces,and excited to say they have all been approved by the buyer so tomorrow I will begin varnishing! More photos to come:)
My favorite time of the year to hike is Autumn in Colorado. Early morning, October 2018 on the CDT/CT.
Love this Place ❤️ #VelvetBuck #Aspen #coloradoaspens #usa
What happened today in the Denver studio..... Another layer on Aspen on brown #2 .
This is a detail shot One of the trees from my favorite of four current commissions I’m working on. I just love how the paint crackled on its own in this piece. #aspen #denverartgallery
Still not able to get a photo with true colors to show you. The background is navy, brown and gold. The lighting in the studio makes it look very dark. This piece is just too big for me to carry up the stairs at this time to take a picture of, but maybe if you zoom in you can see some of the beautiful colors in the background and in the trees. The trees are beautifully crackled. The two on blue have very straight strong trees as per the buyers request and the ones on brown have curvy more whimsical trees as per the buyers request. The two blue pieces will be in one room and the two brown pieces in another. I will get photos with more accurate colors once I have some help getting them out into the daylight:) I did add some detail shots on my Facebook page that show the colors a bit better.
What’s happening in the Denver studio..... tree placement on Aspen commission number four.

If you put your eyes on Him and follow the vision, no matter how messy the canvas of your life might look like, He will make something beautiful out of it! Just as it is with this painting , you might not understand what is happening but I , the painter , have a plan. How much more will He make all things work out for the good of those who are called according to His purpose! #aspenart #artaspen #aspenartist #aspens #aspentrees #artgallery #artcollective #artcollection #artcollector #artistsoninstagram #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #contemporaryrealism #artandinteriors #artanddesign #interiordesignideas #coloradoart #coloradoartist #coloradoaspens #wildernessart #isabellagaraffa #garaffagalli #acrylicspainting #paintingwithacrylics #artcurator #aspenartgallery
People ask all the time if I use photographs to paint my forests of #aspentrees ... the answer is irrelevant. The question I ask myself before starting a new work is: where is that moment I want so badly to express in my canvas? Is it in a picture I took? Is it in my memories? Is it in both? ... well this time, this photograph has it. This is exactly what I was looking for. So this time, yes! I am painting straight from this photograph I took! 😉💗🙌🏼 #aspenart #artaspen #aspenartist #aspens #aspentrees #artgallery #artcollective #artcollection #artcollector #artistsoninstagram #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #contemporaryrealism #artandinteriors #artanddesign #interiordesignideas #coloradoart #coloradoartist #coloradoaspens #wildernessart #isabellagaraffa #garaffagalli #acrylicspainting #paintingwithacrylics #artcurator #aspenartgallery
Trying to get immersed back into this timeless moment when I was day dreaming in this place... the sound of the leaves, their glimmering light, the illumination of the trees ... This is part of my creative process. If it makes sense, I am trying to capture all the feelings that kept me in awe so I can somehow transplant them into my canvas, and paint just “that”. More to come ... stay tuned! #aspenart #artaspen #aspenartist #aspens #aspentrees #artgallery #artcollective #artcollection #artcollector #artistsoninstagram #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #contemporaryrealism #artandinteriors #artanddesign #interiordesignideas #coloradoart #coloradoartist #coloradoaspens #wildernessart #isabellagaraffa #garaffagalli #acrylicspainting #paintingwithacrylics #artcurator #aspenartgallery

Every detail of this world - every tree, every snowflake, every single drop of rain and every golden, fallen leaf turned brown was planned and seen before it ever happened by our ABBA, our Father, our Creator and King. HalleluYah!! #coloradoaspens #fallisover #estespark #halleluyah #i ❤️estespark #yhwh #abba #praiseyah #familyvacation2018

What happened today in the Denver studio....... prepped two large canvases for current Aspen commissions!
December hike; didn't see another person! Lovely! ❄️🏔💕#coloradoaspens
Another painting I'm working on for family. #coloradoaspens #aspentrees #acrylicpainting #inprogress
So........FUN News.....can't share all of the details yet, but I just received a commission for four 54"x54" Originals - variations of this painting "Dancing in the Moonlight":):) They found this painting in Google images.... This is why as both an art marketing coach and an artist I hold FIRMLY to the fact that blogging is NOT dead. Every corporate, hotel, restaurant......hospitality contract I have had over the past 10 years has come the same way. Blogging consistently is your vehicle for getting your name, keywords and images to show up in the search engines, so that when someone is searching for something you do- they find you. Even though I have a brick and mortar gallery in the heart of Denver, 80% of my annual sales still come through the web! What a wonderful time we live in as artists, that through the internet, we can reach the whole world:)
Winston Churchill once said: “No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.”......Horses are my first love, easier to talk to than people. They always take such great care of me.💜🐴 #beavercreekcolorado #beavercreekcolorado2018 #beavercreekmountain #horses #ridinghorses #bliss #majestic #fallfoliage #changingleaves #coloradoaspens #coloradoishome #coloradolove #winstonchurchill #winstonchurchillquote #beavercreekstables #horsebackriding #coloradoinstagram #coloradolife #gentlegiants #bliss
