Autumn Charm - A New Small Painting


Autumn Charm

Fall is a lovely time of year in New Mexico. This little painting features a chile ristra on a blue door, with potted flowers and a pumpkin. I added some ceramic stucco medium to the paint to create the texture on the adobe walls.    This is an acrylic painting on 1.5 inch deep gallery wrap canvas. The edges are also painted and it is signed on the front and back. It will be varnished in a satin finish and ready to hang.

Trying Out My New Field Easel


I started on a new painting a while back that will be called River Path. I had been working from a photograph and was already pretty happy with it. Yesterday, I bought a new field easel and decided to work on the painting outdoors this morning. It was such a beautiful fall morning, which made for a great experience painting outside.    At first, I had a hard time finding the exact spot where I had taken the picture because things looked a bit different. I finally found a location that was as close as possible to what I had already painted. Of course, [...]

Evening of the Arts 2014


This was my first year entering the New Mexico State Fair Professional Fine Arts Show. I was so excited to have my painting, Chaste Trees, accepted into the show. I attended the reception, Evening of the Arts, on September 9, 2014. I really enjoyed this event! First, I attended the awards ceremony, which was held outside at the Boxcar Stage and next to some very talkative goats! They were very cute, though, and did quiet down after a bit. I did not win any awards, but it was a beautiful evening and I enjoyed seeing the artists accepting their awards.   Then, we [...]
