time to enjoy...

The view outside my studio door.


A CHAIR WITH MY NAME ON IT

I might actually have time to sit out there this coming weekend.


PAINTINGS

I am finished with all 150 paintings! They are all numbered, boxed,and ready to go, except for 26, which are still in various drying stages in the studio.
I didn't get to a couple of subjects that I really wanted to paint, so there may be a few secret "extra" paintings at the show. I want to paint a snow scene, and one of my friends posted an absolutely gorgeous close-up photo of one of her irises on her facebook page and said I could paint it. Thank you Janet!

THE SHOW

I am sending an invite to all of you to come down and see the show.
We will have great music, lots of goodies, and most of all,

150 framed oil paintings on the wall at one time!
I won't be doing another 150 CHALLENGE for quite some time, so this will be the last chance to see such a grouping all at once.
Remember, the Artist's Reception is from 5pm - 6:30pm,

and the show and sale start promptly at 6:30pm.


Just pick your preferences, and if no one else chooses them, those paintings are yours for $150 each. If two or more people choose the same piece, a name will be drawn for the winner. After those are complete, you may begin removing your pieces for purchase from the wall.
Weem's Gallery is located at 303 Romero St NW, in the heart of Old Town, right across from the beautiful San Felipe de Neri Catholic church.

Call the gallery at 505-764-0302 if you need more information.


If you're out of state, you may also call this number with your purchase preferences.
Parking can be found at several spots nearby.
The weather is supposed to be awesome that day, so please, come out and join us - hang out, have some refreshments, check out the paintings, listen to some great music, and think of some subjects I forgot to paint!

THE FUTURE

There are a couple of upcoming paint outs that I want to attend: Arroyo Seco in Taos, a "Moonglow" paint out in Albuquerque, and Canyon Road in Santa Fe.

I have an upcoming group show in September at Weems Gallery Uptown with BC Nowlin, Esta Bain, and Russ Ball.

I will be painting for One Artist Road, my new gallery in Santa Fe.


I have my Weems Artfest show coming up in November.

Taos plein air artist Michelle Chrisman and I are thinking about some type of collaborative show.

I am getting my knees replaced. I am trying not to think about that one.

And of course, last but certainly not least, I will start back up with my daily paintings, available for purchase on this blog.

I may actually have time to cook dinner, go on date with my husband,
and go on a vacation getaway.

Thank you for all of your support during the 150 Challenge and I hope to meet and greet every one of you at the show!
