New Paintings

This was the beautiful sunset over my house yesterday.
Gorgeous gorgeous.
I am having the hardest time trying to work - the outdoors has really been calling my name.
Our weather here has been in the high 60s and I just want to go outside and start pulling weeks and cleaning flower beds.

Speaking of flower beds, here is one of my newest paintings:

And a painting of the village of Valdez near Taos Ski Valley:

This is a beautiful rainy cloudburst. 
The panel was textured a bit, so you can see it coming through:

And this one actually started out to be something else entirely.
I wasn't happy with it, so it got scraped off, except for the orange and yellow foliage at the bottom.
Now, I think I'm in love with it!

 On another note:

Two days ago, I went out to feed the pups and almost stepped on
some really beautiful frosted leaves on the ground.

Funny, how we sometimes don't notice the beauty of
what is right in front of us.

Oh and last, but not least:

Tomorrow I will be working on finishing up two commissions
and working on a sunflower painting for the blog
and facebook page for Let's Paint New Mexico.

  1. GREAT POST! I love your photo!

  2. You amaze me with your productivity. From where does this massive amount of energy come?

    Your work is so happy, colorful and always uplifts my spirits.

  3. Dee, you are so productive. Thank you for sharing both your recent work and the beauty around the area. I love that sunset!

  4. Thanks guys -
    I really don't have massive amounts of energy and I actually have to MAKE myself do things most of the time. I do love color and I love the act of painting, so I guess I'm doing something right!
