recent painting excursions
Little Excursions Close To Home
Since I'm trying to blog every other day,
I thought I would share some images
from Corrales, the vineyards,
and a lovely private garden near the mountains.
This is an old house in Corrales.
It's kind of slowly falling over.
I always wonder about who lived there, what their life
was like, etc.
I've never painted it, but I will one of these days.
My palette knife painting from the vineyards.
Lots of texture on this one.
This is a view of the vineyards gardens overlooking
the Sandia mountains
Rose garden at Casa Perea in Corrales
More rose garden. Love that archway!
Yellow and orange roses
An orange beauty
The rose garden
Roses with archway
Water droplets on rose
Old church in Old Town. I went looking for hollyhocks.
I also found a guitarist!
These will make a lovely painting!
Lilacs and flower pot
Beautiful wood carving at the vineyards
Grapevines are flourishing
So this morning I headed up towards the mountains.
There was a layer of cloud cover.
We painted at this beautiful private garden.
The mountains were just beyond.
My two finished paintings today:
And my scenery on the way back home:
A lovely and tiring day!
Tomorrow, I am starting a large panting,
so stay tuned...
