I had a showing this last weekend for Let’s Paint New Mexico. My dad wanted challenge 18, which I didn’t paint. I just finished it this morning. He likes it! I do too.
I think I would like to paint sunflowers more. I have tried to stay away to expand my flower horizons but I have missed them! I painted this painting for Let’s Paint New Mexico Challenge #19.
This is a local ditch bank in Corrales, New Mexico with the Sandia Mountains in the background.
I’m not sure I have blogged about my banner yet! Here is the scoop. Julianna Kirwin put together a public arts project. When all was said and done, I had a pretty banner hanging from a lamp post on 5th and Mountain Road. My banner will hang for a year along with others that span the blocks between 5th and 12th Street. I was especially excited to have my piece hung across the street from a banner of Johnny Tapia. Very cool.
I’m learning to paint roses.
I love this painting. The colors are vibrant, the brush strokes are pretty and the subject is my favorite.
