Longtime Denver artist Jess DuBois has created an ad-hoc studio in the lobby of the Ramada Inn on East Colfax in Denver.  A charcoal pencil, an easel, and few clip lights. DuBois is in that lobby thanks to a burst water pipe. That and a subsequent mold problem pushed him out of his longtime studio in Denver’s historic Five Points neighborhood.
