This is my second attempt at the Challenge 1 painting of Corrales hollyhocks.
A group of artists have started painting in a group called, "LET'S PAINT NEW MEXICO!"

We have a blog (Click HERE to view) and a facebook page of the same name.
I post an New Mexico image once a week -  ideally, every Sunday night - and we all create our version of the image. Really cool!


Now on to a few other things...
I was out the other day looking for winter inspiration and drove up near Balloon Fiesta Park and this was my horizon view:


 This is a view of the western horizon with Mount Taylor in the background.
The coolest thing was I didn't even realize that I had gotten the church in the shot 
until I edited the photos.
I was trying to crop out the telephone wires above Mount Taylor.
This might be a long horizontal painting soon.


This was near the same location.
Who would have thought that winter colors (or seemingly lack thereof) 
could be so beautiful? Lots of gold, yellows, and beautiful maize colors.


 This is the one I chose for our Challenge 2 inspiration photo.
It has beautiful colors, leaves in the foreground, dried chamisa flowers, 
and a nice horizon line.
I'm anxious to get started on this one.


Another view.
I think this would also make a nice winter painting.

Being from New England, I love the winter colors. They are muted but vibrant.

Your paintings of flowers are beautiful.
