Hello everyone! It has been a long day. I picked up my paint-out packet and decided to start off at La Cienega, a village halfway between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. I painted a small painting, took lots of pics and continued on to the Turquoise Trail - the backroads between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
I painted in Galisteo, Cerrillos, and took pictures in Madrid and Golden. I was disappointed because they put a big chain link fence around the beautiful old church in Golden. All in all, I've decided I don't like painting on location in the heat of July and I don't like painting alone, but I don't know if I'd like anyone going with me either. I saw lots of fantastic cloud formations along the way and I will be heading to Santa Fe on Monday to hopefully paint all day. I will finish my small commission tomorrow.
