two new paintings available

"SUNSET, ELENA GALLAGOS"
10"X8"
I LOVE grasses. I love the texture, I love to see and hear them blowing in the wind. That's why I really like how this painting turned out. It is from a PAPNM paint-out day up at the Elena Gallegos recreation area in the Sandia mountains. I didn't encounter any other painters but I loved the light, the solitude, and the stillness. I caught the last of the sunset sinking below the horizon and it put a nice glow on the hills and trees. Can't wait to go back in the spring.

Hi Dee! Wow...this one caught my eye in the Daily Painters New Releases! Your work has caught my attention before as I have your blog already in my fave list. I was reading one of your previous blogs "about you" and boy can I relate! I paint too...not daily...well, just about. Love your blog and will keep an eye out for your new paintings. Love the colors you use too. I was amazed at how many you use! I thought I was using too many! Now I feel silly!
Best wishes for your 150 paintings!

Hi and thanks for the nice comments! I really think that I do use too many paints in the studio - I try to narrow it down when I go on location because it's just easier. I do know artists who use 4-5 and artist who use about 40 (in a metal pizza pan - little tiny dots of color). Thanks for the wishes on the 150 paintings. I need to get my butt in gear!
