Meet our Docent:

Judy Wolf

Painting or drawing for me is an expression of my love for this beautiful place that God created for us to enjoy. I love to get lost in that quiet, peaceful place of trying to get on paper or canvas what I am seeing and feeling while

outside “Plein Air Painting”. I usually finish my paintings at my home studio and also paint on a larger canvas from my photos.I studied art at the University of Colorado at Boulder but have been drawing, designing, and photographing most of my life.
