As this is my first post, I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Nola. You may also know me as the Accidental Artist. I blog about my creations at I am on Facebook as Nola Svoboda • Accidental Artist, Twitter as @AccidentArtist and on Instagram as @COloRADic. I am in fact in my professional life, the Production Manager at the Telluride Daily Planet as well as a Brand Ambassador for Liberty Skis out of Avon, CO, and I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, CO.

I am in my personal life, an Accidental Artist in life. A lover of deserts, mountains, sand, rocks, sun and snow. A native of Colorado, I have lived all around the state. Currently I call the San Juan Mountains my home and this blog is a reflection of my adventures and experiences of living in Colorado.

And away we go!

As winter quickly approaches, here is a quick look back on summer in Colorado's San Juan Mountains.
