New Paintings

 "GOLDEN HILLS NEAR JEMEZ"
8X10"

This is a fall view of the Jemez hills.
I have such a craving to go on a day trip - you wouldn't believe it. 
It's been so hot here, though, so I'm trying to wait until it cools off a little. 
I want to go to Jemez, Abiquiu, Taos, Ghost Ranch - you name it, all of my favorite places.
I'm praying for rain and cooler temperatures.

 "THE RAIN NEAR SANTA FE"
5X5"

I'm tryin to put a name to the location on each painting so I don't forget.
This was snapped off to the right on the way to Santa Fe.

 "LAST SUN, ALGODONES"
5X5"

Love this sweet little painting.

 "DEEP PINK"  TAOS
5X5"

This is another rendition of my hollyhocks on grey.
The grey adobe is now has a little more cool yellow - 
makes it feel more like summer hollyhocks.


This are my panels for Balloon Fiesta.
They are hard panels with wood around the sides to act as a frame.
Before I begin a painting,  I tape the sides so I don't get paint on them.
After I'm done with the painting, I strip the tape off and paint the wooden sides black. 
They feel like sturdy boxes with their own little frames.
I love them!

Dee, What a lovely series of paintings. Your frame idea is pretty cool, too. Love your cheerful colors.

Thank you - since it's for Balloon Fiesta, I wanted something sturdy that wouldn't get crushed in a suitcase.
