NIGHT LIGHTS

This painting, NIGHT LIGHTS, started as an exercise in developing my skills with a palette knife. I had a few knives, but wanted more of a selection, so I bought a set of nine in various sizes and shapes. I

RADIANCE and PROMISE

My latest New Mexico landscape, very close to my heart, painted with saturated colors and passion. These colors are mine…easy to use and easy to envision in a finished work. The image above is not quite as exciting as the

VIRGA near PLACITAS

I think this painting reflects what I have been seeing around Santa Fe for an entire month. The rain threatens…lots of noise and wind, but not a drop reaches the ground. VIRGA, rain that evaporates before reaching the ground, is

COLD FRONT AT TAOS PLATEAU

This painting was a risk for me. The entire palette is much darker than I usually use. At times, I thought it was too dark, so I continually moved it from my easel to the living room to outside and

The Rio Grande at Caballo

This is the second piece I added to the gallery last week. I planned on painting a quiet piece and thought that the dammed up Rio Grande near Caballo fit the bill. Caballo, NM is just south of T or

Waldo Canyon Wind

Waldo Canyon Wind is the painting that sat on my easel for about three days while I contemplated what I needed to do with the sky. I wanted some direction to the clouds, started to place a few and, voila,

AFTER THE RAIN

It has been a busy two weeks! I started on a horizontal landscape that just didn’t want to cooperate, so I thought I would start another piece and take a break from the first. AFTER THE RAIN is the result.

ABIQUIU LOWLANDS

Some things don’t go as planned, but take a turn…this time for the better. I began this painting, as I stated in my previous post, with Elephant Butte, NM in mind. It wasn’t quite developing that way, so I let

THE TADPOLE FIRE in the Gila NM

I was quite surprised to find a gallery in Madrid had sold some of my large landscape paintings this month. I didn’t realize art buyers were out and about considering the limited openings here in New Mexico, but people are

Finding my Way

First things first….I did not like the first painting in the Covid series…the one I posted last week. It was a good practice piece, but needs improvement, or maybe something else…. I have moved on to painting no. 2 and

In One Direction

I chose to paint this week because I have a direction for a series…Covid 19. I plan to paint six to ten pieces expressing different facets of this pandemic, more emotional than literal. Some pieces will remain untitled until I
