a wonderful journey

Oh my goodness.
I just spent four blissful days in Taos, New Mexico.

I went with my two artist friends, Barb Clark and Susana Erling.
We went to paint, eat, relax, sleep, and paint some more.

I made seven paintings, not as many as I wanted, but I
took over 400 reference photos that will be fantastic
subject matter for my 100 painting series, "FOR A SONG."

I will say that when we got to Taos, it was raining.
And cloudy. And beautiful.
 I'm showing the images extra large to give you the full effect:
