    What a privilege to have been one of Molly's students. Her passion for the outdoors got many of us to fall in love with plein air painting. A few special moments: Her lesson on painting water given while teetering on a rock in Clear Creek, meeting her...  more

    Molly, my friend, I miss you. You were the kind of friend who would make one feel good about oneself even if undeserving. Your innate sense of fairness, and your indefatigable will to right what is wrong, continue to be an inspiration. Thank you for...  more

    Some twenty-one years ago, our 11-year-old son, Quentin, hinted that he had a crush on not one, but two, girls in his fifth-grade class. We did a bit of research and eventually found out that both girls were taking art lessons from Molly Davis. Despite...  more

    I took 2 of Molly's plein air watercolor classes in 90 deg July heat. I still see her running up and down the path with her silver umbrella checking the students as we worked. I frequently hear her voice in my head, guiding me, as I paint. The planet...  more

    Just before learning of Molly's death I came across this photo of a demo Molly gave while teaching watercolor at Chautauqua, Boulder. She taught me more than I thought I could learn! I will miss her, yet I am glad her pain is ended. She is a marvel!

    In late 2012, I phoned Dave Sutherland and asked him whether there were any OSMP volunteers that he thought might be good to serve on the Open Space Board of Trustees and who might be interested in taking on that role. He suggested Molly -- and I phoned...  more
