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

Shirley Bales, is a multi-generational painter. Shirley formally studied fine art under an accomplished forensic portrait artist and other notable illustrators in the 1990's. Shirley also attended workshops by acclaimed plein air painters, and exclusively painted outside for over 15 years to develop her acute color sensibility. Shirley attributes most of her technical knowledge to the Cennini Forum, comprised of forerunners of the Classical Realism Movement. Shirley has participated in multiple group and solo shows winning multiple awards and accolades over the years. Her work resides in hundreds of private collections nationwide. Shirley, now a resident of Colorado Springs, paints Colorado and beyond.
