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.

  Found some!

I also found a guitarist!


These will make a lovely painting!

Mexican Hat

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...
