History of Eleven Mile Canyon

Today I am excited to share with you . . .  a sneak peak of my new Eleven Mile Canyon Collection!

Eleven Mile Canyon Collection

Please join me in celebrating the wonder that surrounds us. Let it wash over you—renewing your spirit and awakening you—as you move forward after a period of rest, to a more sustainable pace, and a renewed desire for connection.

Eleven Mile Canyon is a popular place for birders, rock climbers, fly fishermen, hikers and campers. Originally, the canyon was occupied by the UTE Indians as early as 1000 AD.

Later, the canyon became popular with Colorado Springs affluent, for wildflower and nature excursions via The Midland Railroada railroad that once provided access to Aspen, Leadville and other mining towns.

Shirley Bales, artist

Hi there! I'm Shirley. While I was practically born with a paintbrush in hand, I formally studied fine art under an accomplished forensic portrait artist and other notable illustrators in the 1990's. My favorite thing to do is paint outside. I  paint in mixed media and oil and love color! My work resides in thousands of private collections nationwide, and I am so grateful.
