Denver Public Library Adds My Painting “Denver Art Museum, Sky, Library” to Their Permanent Collection

I’m excited to announce that the Denver Public Library has acquired my painting “Denver Art Museum, Sky, Library” for their permanent Western History collection!

You may remember that I created this painting in 2007 for the first High Plein Air Arts painting event in Denver’s Golden Triangle Museum District.  At the time, my painting was juried into the exhibit at the Central Library where DPL staff first expressed interest in acquiring it.

So, they’ve now added it to their permament collection and, after cataloging, will use it for special exhibits at the Central Library at 13th/Broadway in Denver.  I had a great time working with Jim Kroll, Manager of DPL’s Western History/Genealogy Department, and here’s what he had to say:

“David’s watercolor joins several other images of the Central Library included in the Western History collection.  As a regional artist, the Library is pleased to add his creation to a collection that consists of over fourteen hundred original paintings and three-dimensional depictions of the West.  Several framed pieces and sculpture can be seen on the fifth level of the Central Library.” — Jim Kroll, Manager of Western History/Genealogy Department at Denver Public Library

    David! The viewpoint makes such a interesting composition and the treatment of the sky is great. Congratulations on this big addition to your resume and your wallet. Some sap green might have been nice, though…..hee hee.
