Thanks to everyone who sent in their ideas and subject matter.
I had a hard time deciding but Linda sent me beautiful photos of these places and I just had to paint them. I give her first option on purchase, then it will go to you guys. I've never been to either of these places, but now I think I'm going to have to go!
As for the rest of the ideas, I plan to complete each and every one of them, so stay tuned. And Leedy, don't forget, I will paint a horse for you.
If anyone would like to see Linda's photos, I will post them. Have a great night!


  1. Dee, you've made me very happy - these are great! You MUST visit those areas in New Mexico - you're too close to miss it! Talk about getting inspiration - you better bring a camera! I took tons of photos, and they can be viewed on my Flickr site. I feel very lucky that my photos inspired you - and now you've inspired me right back.
    Thank you SO much! ~Linda~

    Yes, these are both WINNERS. Beautiful subjects and wonderfully captured in Dee's style. Congratulations to Linda. It is great that there was so much participation and we all have the benefit of seeing the results. I'm new to this blogging, but I really enjoyed seeing all the comments. Tom

    Oops...forgot to say, that I would love to see the photos, too. Please post them, Dee.

  4. I got my paintings today, and they are wonderful!! The photos don't do them justice - the colors are more vibrant than what show up on my computer. Thank you, Dee - I love them, and will be putting them on the wall tomorrow. Every time I see them I will think of you & your art, as well as our special trip to NM! Keep up the great work....I look forward to seeing what you've done every evening!
