New Mexico Skies

11″ x 14″ Oil, $175

This is one of my favorites, painted with pure pigment sticks ~

that’s what gives it such rich color ~

and I hope it finds a “forever home” where it will be loved.

Of course this may look like California, Arizona, or any number of places;

it may remind you of a path you are on in your life right now.

I’m in the process of packing up to move,

and so am reducing prices to spur sales;

I’d much rather these artworks go to homes than spend time

in moving boxes.

Land of Enchantment

12″ x 16″ Oil, $195

The huge sky of New Mexico remains with me

even though it’s been years since I’ve visited

the land of Enchantment.

Taos, Santa Fe, Albuquerque ~ such a different vibe there,

and of course the art, dining, opera.

But most of all it’s the sky that grabs me.

Painted with pure pigment sticks, the saturated colors of New Mexico

invite the viewer to visit, even if you’re traveling by arm chair.
