THINGS CHANGE

Oh how things change! These two pieces are sitting in silence at Tapestry Gallery in Madrid, NM because non-essential businesses are now closed in New Mexico, at least until November 30. It is understandable because the virus numbers are high

SMALL WORKS ACCEPTED

As I previously mentioned, I spent a great deal of time developing a presentation that I like for my small paintings. The angle of the photo above depicts the layering I used. Though it took a few twists and turns,

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

LOOKING WEST

LOOKING WEST is a new painting, delivered last week to Earthen Vessel Gallery in Durango, CO. Breaking my attraction to horizontal landscape formats presented a bit of a challenge, but worked itself out as I “sketched in” the under painting.

PURPLE RAIN

Ah…Purple Rain, or any rain! I wanted to do a fun and colorful piece while I was camping in the National Forest last week…no cell service, no internet…just peace and quiet and true solitude. I did two smaller paintings while

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

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

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

ISOLATION…finished

This piece is finally complete as part of the Covid series. I was having a difficult time placing the text…where, what font, what color…so it took a while. Keeping the letters smaller and more formal seemed to do the trick.

QUARANTINE is painting number 4 in the Covid series. This piece is the first in a pre-planned sequence. Playtime is over and I am following a more structured plan for this series. I have three 36 inch square canvases that

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

In a Quandary

I am in a quandary. As you know, I love to paint, but I also have found great pleasure in working with textiles again. And loving to paint also works into the fabric sculptures because I paint the fabric. Yes,
