I am a painter working in pastels, with some oils, and acrylics. I sketch in pen and ink. As an artist my original paintings are influenced from living in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Bolivia, Peru and Chile, and travels throughout much of Canada and all our fifty States.
This is my spot for posting paintings and sketches, to muse mostly about art, life and a little about UT Baseball.
Thanks to a couple of new followers. I hope they haven't given up on me. It has been ages since I posted. They say time flies when you are having fun and I guess that is true. Sue was here and we did plein air and were so busy. Gene's sisters came, too. More about that later.
Sue and I sketched in Eagle Nest and old town about 12 miles from Angel Fire, July 20. One fit in Scavenger Hunt 368, sort of.....
Number 1, flower - the hanging flowers under the awnings.
Number 2, decoration - a faux string of peppers, ristra of chile, about 1.5 foot long.
Number 3, phone
I sketched a trailer park in Eagle Nest, too, but didn't finish as you see.
Sunset from the house, July 25.
I will post the plein air paintings and stories soon. Promise!
I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los Niños. (Link on sidebar)
