DESERT MOUNTAIN VIEW
This is a recent oil painting done on canvas. It is 24" x 36". I love painting desert paintings. There can be so much drama and I hope that I have captured that and done justice to this area near Tucson, Arizona.

FALL IN NEW MEXICO
FALL IN NEW MEXICO - OIL ON PANEL - 12" X 9"
I went up to the mountains as soon as I thought there would be color. I went with two friends, all of us plein air painters and studio painters. It is always fun to get out in the fresh air. It was cold. I was under a tree to give shade to my palette and panel. I have a hard time understanding the color if my palette and panel are lit up. I just can't see anything! I chose this scene because it was simple. It is hard to get all that amazing color and foliage into one little rectangle but I think I made a good effort.

Painting in New Mexico is such a treat. There are so many beautiful hidden places to paint but there are also very well know places like the view of Cerro Pedernal. Georgia O'Keeffe Comes to mind when I think of someone famous who painted the scene. Of course, I just had to do it myself. Below is the photo of Georgia O'keffee's interpretation and then below that is mine.

Next is a painting I did of the same area many years later!

This little oil painting (11" x 14") was done recently. It really typifies the wonderful clouds we get here in Santa Fe. I am always amazed at the sky. In fact, I find myself wondering why I even bother with the land but I then realize, what makes the sky so stunning is what is also below it. So, I continue to paint land and sky. In this case, very little of the high desert land was necessary. Hope you like it. It is available at Arroyo Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico.

This is the under painting in the verdaccio method. I made my own gesso from Marble Dust and Rabbit Skin Glue. The final results after several glazes and opaque application is below. This painting can be seen at Wilde Meyer Gallery, Scottsdale/Tucson, Arizona
