Fall is really here in New Mexico!

The Balloon Fiesta is happening for the next six days,
leaves are falling, the temperature is cooler.

And I am itching to take a day trip SO bad.

BUT - I have to work on paintings for Weems Artfest before
I can even think about going anywhere.

This is the first large painting I am doing specifically for Artfest.
I started off in acrylic because that's what I've been painting
for the last seven months.
I love the piece but my intent was to line it
and I just don't want to.

I was going for a more abstract look and I like this.
So, what do you think: lines or no lines?

"ALONG THE HILLSIDE"
30X24"

I also hear that Abiquiu is having their studio tour next weekend.
I want to go!

The Retro Challenge is almost over.
Only a few more days to pick out your paintings and then they will be gone.
Some of them will reappear at Artfest but they won't be $150.
If you are interested, click HERE for the Retro site 
with all of the available paintings, 
and call Weems Gallery at 505-293-6133 if a painting speaks to you!

Take care, enjoy life, and i will write more tomorrow....

I know you really had moved past lines before the retro challenge into something that was growing for you. So I would say "no lines" but ONLY if that is what YOUR heart says. The Artfest now? When is your break? Maybe we can go to Abiqui this weekend.

Carol, I skipped Artfest last year so I thought I'd better this year. Want to take a day trip soon, but no time!!
