Supply List & Reference Photos

Paints, paper, brushes, paper, the salt shaker from the kitchen table (and if they have it, a bit of ice cream salt … large crystals, kosher salt for different sized textures), a small piece of sponge, and something sharp like an old fashioned compass with the metal point, a knitting needle, a woodworker’s awl, even a large sewing needle.

Here’s a little more about Anne:

Anne Gifford paints with watercolor where she builds successive layers of color to create her vibrant, rich, and detailed paintings. She has lived in Boulder since 1976 and finds inspiration in the natural beauty of Colorado. Light, shadows, rocks, water, mountains, canyons, wildlife, and whimsy are all part of her subject matter as she brings her own unique vision to her work. 

Anne is an award-winning artist and the eight-time poster artist for the Bolder Boulder 10K Memorial Day Race. Her paintings have been chosen to represent The 150th Anniversary of Boulder County and the 40th Anniversary of Boulder County Open Space.

Anne was an artist/owner of the Boulder Arts and Crafts Gallery, where she displayed her work and networked with local artists for over 40 years. One of the most rewarding aspects of her long career is that it has provided her with the opportunity to bring joy into the lives of others with her artwork, and that is why she paints.
