What is the subordinate clause in the sentence? While he was on vacation in Colorado, Ivan painted some beautiful landscapes of the Rocky Mountains and gave the paintings to friends.
The subordinate clause is simply the part of the sentence that cannot stand alone. "Ivan painted some . . blah, blah, blah . .to friends," by itself, can be a complete sentence. "While he was on vacation in Colorado," by itself, is a fragment.
