TESTIMONIAL: As the Broadmoor has gone through many updates, renovations and additions over the past decade, Mickey Baxter’s artistic talents have allowed us to apply the kind of thoughtful art detail that existed throughout the original 1918 resort, as part of our newly added facilities. Her work has been superlative and enjoyed, commented on and photographed by so many of our guests. Additionally, she is a joy to work with.

TESTIMONIAL: Mickey, I wanted you to know about your painting in the Chapel at Memorial Hospital. We hold an interdemoninational Christian service each Monday at 11:30. It’s a very short service…only 15 minutes and it’s open to anyone who is at the hospital. Last week a person joined the service and after the service the individual said the path on your painting is the path their child has walked since entering the hospital. Evidently the child has been hospitalized several times for a variety of illnesses and the person said the child started at the beginning of the path, wound their way through various challenges on the path and they are currently past the first trees and on the upward path on the path. As the parent spoke, they walked the path with their fingers. they said they spend many hours in the Chapel looking and meditating on the path in your painting. You and the work you do gives people a path to follow . . . a path of Spirit and of hope! What a precious gift.
With my appreciation and love,

TESTIMONIAL: I have been associated with Mickey Baxter for the past five years here at the Broadmoor. She has completed art projects for us that include the west tower, west lobby, main hotel guest floors, entry portico ceiling, the hotel bar, pool cabana restaurant and many others. Her creativity, technical expertise and ability to meet fast-paced schedules have made her a valuable asset to all of the projects she has been involved in. Our guests continuously compliment the artwork and our ability to enhance the Broadmoor’s existing collection, while maintaining the high standards set by the original artisans. I have found that Mickey has the ability to match her work to the vernacular of the particular project, from the original 1918 structures to our newly constructed facilities. I highly recommend Mickey as a qualified candidate for any project for which she is being considered.

TESTIMONIAL: It is my pleasure to work with Ms. Mickey Baxter over the last several years. Certainly she is a gifted artist/muralist who has created beautiful images throughout our resort. Because she also has excellent presentational skills, I have asked her to lead several art tours showcasing her works. Guests were thrilled with her talent, knowledge and personal demeanor. We often refer to Ms. Baxter as our artist-in-residence!

Designed to fit a curved area above the mantle of a fireplace at the Broadmoor Resort. If framed art had been hung there it would have faced slightly toward the ceiling. A mural is a perfect solution.

Hand painted mural above fireplace at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs. The design originally finished in 1918 was round. Since the area on the fire place was more linear I designed it to be oval. The colors were selected to coordinate to the room.
