in the studio...

IN THE STUDIO.....

"OVERLOOK"
8X8"
oil

My first studio painting in a while!
This was from an image taken during a paint out up in Questa, NM.

I fell in love with this canyon and the river at the bottom.
This is a place called Sheep's Crossing 
(didn't see a sheep crossing anywhere)
 in the Wild Rivers Recreation area.

Richard Alan Nichols did a demo at this location
 and his work enticed me to buy some new paint colors:
Cobalt Blue and Radiant Violet.
I haven't popped them open yet but will soon.

Gosh, I just love painting landscapes.
There is something so special about our state - 
the open skies, the vast mesas, the vegetation,
the water (for which we are so thankful),
the canyons and ridges, the formations,
I could go on.
I never get tired of painting New Mexico!

This painting is part of my 150 CHALLENGE, 
which will be finished by my ART GARDEN PARTY
happening Sunday, September 3rd.
I hope!
