New Paintings


Back in Painting Mode

Seriously, if you ever lose your desire and 
motivation for painting - take a few days off.
Visit art galleries. 
Get some new art books.
Go to Barnes and Noble and browse the art magazines.
Get online and see other artists' websites and blogs.

And them, get in the studio and PAINT something.

I am in work mode now and in a way,
that's not good because I have 7 shopping days until
Christmas and I have bought NOTHING.
Zilch. Nada.

But I'm not worried. Why?
Because I do this every year.

I have ordered a turkey with fixings from the local
store and will buy my supplies to make all of my goodies this week.

But in the meantime, I will paint.

 This is a SOLD commission of beautiful hills and mesas.

#60  "GARDEN ABSTRACT"
8x8"
oil

For every landscape I paint, I try to throw in a wild and chaotic abstract piece.
Why? Because it loosens up my hand 
and reminds me what I love about being an artist.
This is a view of larkspur and poppies from a Corrales Garden.

Today, I will be painting Canyon Women!

You can find this painting available HERE.
