I can't believe it's already here.
I have SO much to do before the 26th, it's not even funny:

finish the 150 - box
finish the ornaments
finish the large paintings
send out another postcard
prepare press releases - mail
prepare the back of all paintings for hanging
create a flyer/poster for Weems - deliver
make a list of food for the show - buy

I'm sure there's more, but right now all I
can think about it getting the work completed and ready to hang.

Meanwhile, I painted in Corrales this past week - plein air!
I was so excited to be back out in the field, it's been 7 months
since I touched a tube of oil paint.

I only got to go out three times for about two hours each time
but I came back with three paintings that I love.

One was painted sitting in a big field of sunflowers during the 
hottest part of the day, surrounded by bees.

The second was painted at the Corrales Winery during the last light of the setting sun.
what a beautiful and peaceful place - hanging out with 29 other plein air painters.

The last was painted at the Corrales mercantile portal.
I was sitting under the portal, looking at a big pot of flowers and also 
painting the little adobe across the street - which was separated from me
by a big main road of traffic.

These paintings are all available for purchase.

They will be going to the Corrales JAZZY STARRY NIGHT event in a few days.
If you are interested, email me at

Meanwhile, back to work!
Thanks for watching...
