Description:

Longtime local artist Ann Weaver donated her watercolor painting of historic Main Street Breckenridge in honor of the town’s 150th anniversary. Among other subjects, Weaver specializes in the architectural details of mining towns, painting from historic black and white photographs in addition to real life. Although she now resides in Castle Rock, she returns to the high country on a regular basis to participate in Wild About Colorado Art & Outdoor Festival, which benefits conservation initiatives of the Continental Divide Land Trust.
