come see the paintings - two days only!

GARDEN TOUR

The garden Tour is over.
And man, it was a blast!
A few scenes:

 Here I am painting in Garden #6.
No trees on this property, but lots of cool flowers, pathways, and sculptures.
I am using a new box and I really likes it.
It's called a Z Box and it worked just fine for me.
Paints "worms" on the two sides and the inside tray for mixing.


 This was the scene I chose to paint.
Blanketflowers intermixed with purple.

 My initial block in.
I was not thrilled with the outcome of this painting, which is why I'm not showing it here.
The sun was in my eyes and partially on my canvas.
Not a good scenario.

 "FLOWER POTS"
8x10" oil on panel

 "CLEAR DAY"
8x8" oil on panel

 "THE POND"
10x8" oil on panel

 "AMONG THE BEES"
8x10" oil on panel
I found out that this beautiful pink/purple flower is called Sand Penstemon.
Gotta get me some....

 Okay, this is not art - 
But it really is art.
Look at the creativeness!

 Private reception at the old church yesterday.
This is a view of some of the paintings of the old church.

 Closer view.

 Our wonderful guitarist.
He played a lovely variety of music - 
my favorite being Norwegian Wood by the Beatles.

 Paintings of the Corrales Winery.

 Winery paintings.

 Posters for the Garden Tour.
My friend Carol Hopper is the artist.

 These are two of Carol's beautiful garden paintings.

 Sitting at the table - our fearless leader, Sue Winstead.
I have never met a nicer, more welcoming, professional, and so effective, leader.
Thanks Sue!
