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.

  1. Hi,

    I've been following your blog for a number of years and have noticed that you have departed from your usual black lines...

    I love both of your styles very much, is there a reason for the omission of the black lines?

    Thanks and good luck to you!
