BACK FROM TAOS

Arroyo Seco: I want to live in this little village!
El Salto Peak and sunflowers by where we stayed
Well, I'm back. I had a nice quiet relaxing weekend. Actually, it was a little too relaxing, all I did was lay around and sleep. It came a huge rainstorm on Saturday, so hard that my brother-in-law's car almost got hit by a big boulder rolling down off the mountain. The air was fresh and cool too. I did one little oil painting of hollyhocks and that was it.
Tomorrow I start back to work. I'm trying to exercise in the morning and work in the afternoon. I never can stick to any kind of schedule, but I'm going to try 12pm-5pm and see if I can do it. The artist in me just hates deadlines and anything to do with a schedule. We'll see.
I'm going to try to get some daily paintings done this week and then I start painting for Weems Artfest. I am also painting an 8x10 for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta that they will make into little giclees and sell. So, it's gonna be a busy week.

Love the photos - I can totally relate to your issues with schedules - I hate them.
