Meet Beaver Creek Art Fest artists who spend time in Hawaii and Colorado

Daily staff report

BEAVER CREEK — Presented as featured artists at various shows throughout Colorado this summer, Danny and Jan Bushart have been showcasing their award winning artwork, jewelry and paintings.

The Busharts are at the Beaver Creek Art Festival, bringing more than 100 artists of various styles to the village through today.

"We are excited to present our work together at the Beaver Creek Art Festival," said Danny Bushart, who lives in Hawaii with his wife, Jan. "Our goal is to create a gallery setting at the shows with the Rockies as our backdrop."

Jan Bushart is inspired by the seas of Hawaii and by Colorado's majestic mountains, she said.

Love of Nature

"The Rocky Mountains have been an incredible source inspiration for my paintings," she said. "Snowcapped peaks, waterfalls and meadows bursting with wildflowers provide both of us with unparalleled subject matter. We love to hike into the Rockies, where Danny sketches wildflowers for his next jewelry design and I paint the breathtaking panoramas on location with all of the challenges and gifts nature has to offer."
