Weems $185 Show, a sunset painting, a visit to Old Town....

I would like to remind everyone to come this Saturday to 
Weems Uptown annual $285 Show!

It starts at 10am, but people get there EARLY!

Weems is located at Louisiana and Montgomery NE.
Every piece of artwork in this show is priced at $285 or less.

I have about 20 pieces in the show,
two with retail prices of $1800.

I hope to be in attendance myself.
It's always such a fun and crazy event. 
See you there!


I painted this last fall, just came across it yesterday.
Loved it then and I still think it's pretty...
It is oil on gessobord.

I had to go to Old Town the other day and as always, 
there are so many beautiful things to see.
I went early before all the tourists came - it was so nice and quiet.

 I see a painting in this blue window with red petunias!

 This is the opening to a pottery store.

 A funky little shop on the corner. 
I was attracted by all of the bright colors.
The one drawback - they had plastic flowers in their flower pots. Not cool!

 The last of the hollyhock blooms

 An artist enjoying a quiet morning painting - beautiful work!

 I loved the color combination in this photo.

 A quiet hidden courtyard

 Yarrow and I believe artichokes

I then moved on to Los Poblanos.
This is the lotus pond.
What you see in the foreground are some kind of small wild roses. 
The middle ground is the lotus pond.
You can see the lotus flowers starting to bloom.
In the background are the Sandia mountains.

 Okay, I have a thing for chickens and roosters - leave me alone!

 These are hollyhocks taken at a very small house near my home.
An older man lives here and tends his yard and garden very nicely.
Small, but beautiful.

 This is the corner by his driveway.

 The reds

A small acequia near my house.
I pass it daily when I'm out running my errands.


  1. Love that blue in the first couple of pictures. The back doors to my house and the trim on my potting shed as well as a couple of benches in the back yard and herb garden are painted a bright turquoise blue and it really looks wonderful agains all the green of the garden and yard.

    I'm calling this my "turquoise period".


  2. Love the pics and the painting. Wish I could be at the show. It sound amazing. I know you will do great.
