Rainbow Carrots! Who Knew?

Tweet As a beautiful Easter Day came to an end, thoughts of a painting I did last week comes to mind. The first time I saw carrots other than the usual orange carrots I found them fascinating and I wanted to learn more. Did you know there is actually an England’s Carrot Museum? Did you think the original […] […]

Wall Pocket Mural

Tweet August was yet another busy, creative month on my artistic voyage. I am so blessed to be working with beautiful people. These were the highlights of last month. • Finished murals in the lobby of Dr. Tonia Sabo’s offices in Broomfield, Colorado • Created ideas for signs for The Boutique at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs • […] […]

Painting at The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs

Tweet July was full of painting at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs. This is my seventeenth year painting at the Broadmoor. Although I am only there a few times a year, as I approach the porte cochere at The Broadmoor I am still awestruck by the wonder and beauty of this resort. The month started off with a […] […]

Race for The Cure Has Begun

Tweet Throughout the United States the Race for The Cure has begun. This weekend some dear friends are running/walking in support of the Susan G. Komen Foundation in Indianapolis, Indiana.

April Newsletter: Day Lilies

Tweet Blessings of the Season Each season has its own blessing. For me, one of the blessings of Spring is new life, new beginnings, i.e., beautiful spring flowers leading to summer flowers and on to fall flowers. You get the picture. Will I ever get tired of flowers? Doubt it. And with Spring comes the urge to […] […]

Hand Painted Window Treatment

Tweet A Window Treatment that Reflects and Celebrates Your Surroundings Why not bring the outside in? The patio and deck were surrounded by scrub oak, pine trees, flowers and tall grasses. The strong, simple idea of painting scrub oak and ponderosa pine boughs with large pine cones served as my primary inspiration. So down came the heavy […] […]

March Newsletter: Columbines & Poppies

Tweet You are a Priority Somewhere on your list of priorities should be you and things that make you smile. For me filling my surroundings with things I love is part of taking care of me. Some of the things I like to surround myself with are photos of family, remembrances of special times and art that I enjoy. Things that […] […]

Trompe L’oeil Painting

Tweet Trompe L’oeil Wall Pocket Now why would someone want a hand painted wall pocket filled with flowers, in trompe l’oeil style, painted on their wall? Why not just buy a wall pocket and fill it with silk flowers? In this case the area needing embellishment was the wall above the commode in the master bath. My […] […]

Mural Embellished Wine Cellar Door

Tweet Grapevine Embellishment Over Arched Door One sunny afternoon I was designing a new note card when I received a call from a client who had purchased a loft in a downtown Denver sky rise. He had no idea what subject matter he wanted, just something painted over the arched entry door to the wine cellar. Although the expansive loft […] […]

Columbine & Poppies by Broadmoor Artist Mickey Baxter Spade

Tweet Wildflowers in Watercolor I’ve seen it a thousand times but today it’s different. It is as though I see each delicate snow flake falling gracefully onto the already snow-dusted ground. A foggy haze covers the city views. It looks so pristine, even the deer haven’t sauntered by to leave their tracks in the snow. Today is […] […]
