This painting will be available at One Artist Road Gallery in about two weeks. It is one of my favorite subjects to paint and no matter how many times I paint it, it never looks the same.
I wish I could live right at this spot for a year and paint it every day on the hour; early morning right as the sun is coming up, and especially evening, when the sunsets must be magnificent. I'm always driving into Taos in a hurry to get there, so my view is trying to snap a couple of photos out of the car window or parked at the rest stop. Not very glamorous.
I wanted to let you all know that Weems Uptown Gallery is having their special $285 show next Saturday - I believe the time is 10am - 5pm. You guys know this one, it's a once a year event to thank customers for their patronage. All of the artists putting their work in the show have their paintings marked at $285 or less. I have a couple of large pieces in the show that are normally a couple of thousand dollars each for only $285. And about 20 smaller pieces priced at less than that. Everything is usually gone by around 1-2pm, so you have to get there early. I think you can preview the show in full this coming Friday. I am going to try to go, so I hope so of you will come out and say hello.
I promise, daily paintings are coming in just a few days!
Oh, and scroll below to see the new commissions I just finished.
