The Art of Lillian Tharp Maxwell
Grandmother Maxwell worked in watercolor and chalk to celebrate the natural settings, birds,
and flowers of Missouri and San Juan County, Colorado.
In 1898 Lillian painted this wonderful chalk landscape of an old Missouri apple orchard.
Columbines and robins were frequent Silverton subjects. In spring, the hills surrounding Silverton are blanketed with the official state flower, the Rocky Mountain Blue Columbine.
