Five New 150 Challenge paintings
I haven't titled them yet, but wanted to let you see them right away.
This is a vase of poppies from an old photograph
This is a view of the stream and Pedernal
at the little village of Canones, New Mexico, near Abiquiu Lake.
This is from a pretty horrible blurry photo I snapped while driving along these fields - somewhere near Abiquiu or Jemez.
I'll post it sometime this week so you could see what I was dealing with!
I always paint a painting with this subject matter for my 150 shows. I like it to call it the "golden spot" or something like that. It reminds me of just a little slice of New Mexico paradise.
This was an old house perched on a hill headed towards Ghost Ranch. The house itself was a dull grey-blue, but it contrasted so much with the mountains that I felt I had to change it. The beautiful golden tree was also a bright green, which didn't fit in with my plan!
I should have these posted into the 150 Challenge blog tonight. To view the show so far, click HERE.
