Thanks for bidding on and winning my painting! It’s an early one, from a trip to Taos with Albert’s mentorship class. The location is the river access in the low road, across from the Visitor’s Center. I painted it in my Pittsburgh studio and retouched the cloud and distant horizon in my Bastrop studio a few years later when I reframed it. I’m so glad it is yours now. I always liked it.We have driven by that spot many times. "I be happy, as Larry used to say.
I follow a lot of artists on their blogs. I really enjoy knowing more about them and the way they work. Hilda M. Klinger is on my reading list and on the sidebar links. https://muxopastels.blogspot.com/ I realized this morning that I had her name mispelled. Shame on me. Hilda, you may see her here commenting as hmuxo, does beautiful pastel portraits. She paints other things beautifully as well, but is very accomplished in portrait work. Be sure and have a look.
Other social media is full of ads and junk "they" think I should see. I'm not interested in politics and cat videos. It is a constant time consuming effort to update apps, block ads, move folks to the top of my reading list, etc. Call me old fashioned and give me a blog to read anytime. I also use a blog reader which gathers posts from the blogs I follow. It is easier to see them all in one place and not have to go check if they posted anything. Easy peasy.... user friendly!
