I just finished this painting and was thinking about what I wanted the title to be. It's a big jumble of flowers but I think the mountain provides such a nice solid backdrop that the title has to relate to it.
I am painting like crazy now, getting ready for my show June, 27, 28, and 29th. After that, I have a one day crazy show at the new Weems Gallery in the middle of July. We open at 10am that day and people start lining up at about 4am in the morning. Sometimes we have poeple spend the night in front of the gallery. Everything is $285 or less. By noon, the walls are empty.
And I mean EMPTY. It is wildly exciting!
Then I am taking a break. Not a break from painting (I will never do that), but a break from deadlines. I will be doing an exhibition with the Plein Air Painters of NM in September, and a paint out on Canyon Road in Santa Fe on October 18, then Weems Artfest in November. And then NOTHING until May when I will have a big new solo show at the new Weems Gallery. They have so much room now that I am doing some huge new works that I'm really excited about. I will be taking day trips all around NM, painting on location in oils, which is something new for me. And of course, I will continue with my daily paintings online.
Anyway, I just want to thank everyone for watching my site, for giving me feedback, for buying my work and supporting me, and I am so happy that I've made so many wonderful friends - at shows, online, just everywhere. You all make it worthwhile for me to continue doing what I love to do. And I hopeyou'll keep watching - Thank you!
