We continue today with the introductions of the artists who will be at the barn bazaar on November 17th and 24th. I also have some alpaca posts in the works, to mix things up.
It is my pleasure to introduce our very talented neighbor, Christine Cillian. Christine and her husband Brad bought their 10 acre ranch, next door to Cliff House, after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) four years ago. Seeking a less stressful way to live life, she is developing her photography and freelance communication careers, so she no longer will have to commute to Denver.
Christine has just returned from the John Fielder Fall Photography class in Telluride. She will be exhibiting her scenic photographs at the barn bazaar.
Hi Kir! We will be coming down to the ranch for the event next Saturday! So excited to see you; it’s been way too long 🙂 Anyway, I am actually looking for the classic photo of the Maroon Bells in fall for my friend’s wedding present. Do you know if Christine has any of those, and if so, could you have her hold one for me? I would very much appreciate it!! Thanks, and see you next weekend!
Christine shows a remarkable talent. She can paint mountains and make them look real as well as the grassy areas in the foreground. I particularly admire the fact that even though she is suffering from MS, she and her husband still felt able to take on a 10 acre ranch.
She is an amazing person. They also rescue donkeys, who are the sweetest animals. As a photographer, she’s top notch, but it’s how much she dotes on her animals that really gets me.
