Magdalena Church & Texas Hat

I can't believe that I am still so far behind in posting. This trip to New Mexico was not great for posting, even though we had high speed, well, sort of, in the hotel.

This is a framed version of the Magdalena Church that I painted for Gene's mom. We put it up with the Kelly Church and a church I painted in Canada in her new place. They looked great and I forgot a photo. Typical of me these days. Senior moments are more frequent. :)

Gene bought a patch for the hat he bought last summer in New Mexico. (Las Cruces, I believe.) Here is his new version for the warm baseball days this month and early June if we get to go to the Regionals (we will be gone for these for sure, granddaughter graduation) and Super Regionals. We will go to the Big 12 tournament in Oklahoma City.

I will post some of the road trip photos tomorrow and get to work on a new painting. July is fast approaching for the show in Magdalena. Deadlines....... Magazine and news articles must be out this month. Wow.

The painting looks great. And, the hat's not bad, either..

Thanks, Joanna. Did I mention the cactus in the frame is from Powder's place and matches the Kelly Church framing. :)

Howdy Jo!
New Mexico is close to AZ. Any plans to come this way while it's still cool enough?

Hey, Leslie, Howdy, back.

Don't think we will be back until July. Will let you know, you can bet on that!
