This is a painting I am working on for my sister-in-law. It will be a New Mexico vista with aspen trees. I am trying to have it finished in a couple of days, which means I am procrastinating at every opportunity. I think I just want this one to be really good, so I keep putting it off. I need some motivation!!!
Tomorrow I am headed to Santa Fe for the New Mexico Plein Air Society's five day paint out. I won't be going every day but I am planning on doing a lot of painting on location over the next few days. There will be an exhibition of 60 artist's plein air work (including mine) on August 2 at the Mark Zoeller Gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. I will provide more details later.


  1. Dee - I am the queen of procratination. I have a sign in my office that says:
    My Top Ten Favorite Reasons To Procrastinate

    Ha ha!

    Have fun and I can't wait to hear all the details from the paint out.

  2. Cara,
    I like that. I may have to copy it and put it on my door. It is so me!
    I'll write about the paint out along with pics.

  3. Dee,

    This painting looks very interesting, I hope you'll show us the finished product. Do you always paint a ground color, then do the drawing and then start the main colors?
