Taos Road Adobe

Taos Road Adobe, miniature
Just to whet your appetite for fall, this mini should make you wish for crisp, colorful fall leaves and cool nights, which we have been having this week.  Fall is in the air, and it makes me want to be in New Mexico again.  But not this year.  This year I'll be taking two watercolor workshops, one with Ric Dentinger at the Williamson County Art Guild's workshop at the Dalhart Windberg Gallery, and one at Sun City's visual art studio with Nita Harding on Yupo.  You can see Nita's work at  She is fabulous on yupo.  I haven't done anything on Yupo in years, so it should be fun, and her technique is very different than mine.  Ric Dentinger's work was on the June, 2010, cover of Watercolor Magazine.
Both classes are here in Georgetown, so hopefully I'll make both of them.  Lately, I've had to miss a few things I had wanted to attend artwise.  Here's hoping I make both of these!!!!  Can't wait......

Taos Adobe with Hollyhocks

Barely back from Taos, and am so glad I have two miniatures painted to remind me of the beautiful hollyhocks and geraniums all around the adobe homes there.  Same place, different angle & interpretation.  Saw lots of beautiful art to inspire me, and heard great Chamber music from Music from Angel Fire.  More mountain pictures in the works.......

Garden Inspiration

Just back from New Mexico and Amarillo and Perryton visiting friends, listening to great chamber music, and loving the scenery.   My friend Penny's garden was lovely, despite the heat.  Mine had been suffering, but have this piece I finished just before we left to remind me that it was once blooming and lovely.  This is a mixed media piece with collage.  8"x8" paper adhered to  gallery wrap canvas.  $300 to purchase it.
