Abstracted Landscapes

Abstracted Landscapes

I returned home from Santa Fe, NM two weeks ago and I’m still getting adjusted to Florida’s heat and humidity. I hadn’t realized how much it would affect me being gone three months. But, I’m all unpacked and got my studio back in order so I’ll be ready to start new paintings next week.

I truly enjoyed getting to paint in Santa Fe, and one of the things that jumped out to me as I was unpacking my work was how many abstracted landscapes I painted this visit. It was obvious the landscape and terrain played a major role in forming my art. Everyday on my walks I could see mountains and blue skies. Then, when I traveled outside town on day trips other aspects of the countryside left lasting impressions on me.

I hope you will seeing these paintings and some of the places that inspired the art. All paintings are available on my website. If you see one that interests you, simply click the image for more information. And, as always, complimentary US shipping is included. And, don’t forget I offer convenient payment plans if you’d like to set one up.

One of the first paintings was “Walking on Sunshine”, inspired by a bunch of beautiful sunflowers i picked up at the local Trader Joe’s grocery store. Sunflowers are such happy flowers for me, and a staple growing wild throughout Santa Fe.

Sunflowers in Santa Fe. They were really coming into season as I was returning home.

And of course, the sunsets in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas are just breathtaking. To witness these magical sky paintings is a blessing.

The photo below was shot from the back seat of a car as I was traveling back to town from a day in funky little town of Madrid. Not bad from a moving car.

I’ve got some mini oil paintings that haven’t been added to my website. I need to get them photographed. They are wonderful little gems, and I can’t wait to share them with you. Stay tuned for those to be available soon.

What an amazing visit it was this summer. My historic, adobe casita off Canyon Road awaits for my return next year. I’m hoping to make another short weekend visit this Fall to see the leaves change.

Thank you for your continued support friends. If you know of someone who might enjoy my artwork, I would be honored if you shared this blog with them. And, if your friend makes a purchase from your referral, there will be a little something in it for you!!

May 2019 continue to brighten your lives with color.

Spring in Santa Fe, NM

Spring in Santa Fe, NM

I made it back to Santa Fe friends. I’ve been here just a month now, and will be here through July. I’ve been painting my heart out, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. It’s been a wonderful time, even though some days the weather has not cooperated. We’ve had beautiful warm, sunny days followed by some cold, windy days with snow flurries. I’ll take them all as long as I can see the beautiful mountains when I stroll down Canyon Road.

I brought my oil paints along for this trip. I learned last year that acrylics just dry too fast for the kind of painting I like to do. And, I’m finding that I love the feel and texture of oil and having fun experimenting with them and pushing my limits every day.

I’m working on 12 x 12 size paintings on cradled birch panels using oil and cold wax. This technique comes in handy when I’m back in Florida as it helps the oil paintings dry faster. Here are some of the paintings I’ve completed.

For more information on any of these paintings, simply click the button below.

I’ve also been working on a series of mini oil paintings. They’re 6 x 6 inches on archival gessobord. I’m really happy with the way they turning out, and can’t wait for them to dry so I can have them framed. I’ll let you know when they’re available in my shop. I’ve got some tweaking left on a couple, so I’ll share photos in my next post.

Thank you for your continued support friends. If you know of someone who might enjoy my artwork, I would be honored if you shared this blog with them. And, if your friend makes a purchase from your referral, there will be a little something in it for you!!

You Gotta Have Faith

You Gotta Have Faith

I posted this image of my original painting titled “Faith” on Facebook this past Good Friday and received so many responses and questions about whether reproductions were available. The original painting is in my personal collection (my husband would not allow me to sell it), but you can enjoy it in beautiful canvas reproductions or giclee prints.

Ordering is easy! Simply click the image below and you’ll be taken to my Fine Art America shop where you can select the perfect type of print and size for your home.

And, while you’re there, you will notice that I’ve added several new paintings for your enjoyment.

If you’d like more information on this piece, or any of my other original paintings, I invite you to visit my website. And, don’t forget I offer complimentary US shipping and convenient payment plans can be set up anytime. I love to make it easy for my art to find their forever homes.
