Her new show, “Winter Mysteries”, reveals the frosty blues, icy greys and bitter whites of the deepest and coldest of high country winter nights.

Scattered silvery stars in the milky way swirl their magic far from the lights of urban areas.

The broad expanse of the night sky hints at the secrets and mysteries that sparkle unseen in icy dark blue velvet.

Frigid stars gleam between wispy clouds as the crescent moon peeks out from bare aspen trees longing for the green of spring.

Opening Thursday February 1st, Laura’s show “Winter Mysteries” runs through the end of February.

The Laura Reilly Fine Art Gallery and Studio offers a warm and inviting space in Old Colorado City to enjoy Colorado in all its seasons regardless of the weather outside.

“Winter Mysteries” can also be seen at laurareilly.com.
