I am teaching “Cliff and Cloud” workshop this week at Ghost Ranch. Last night was so beautiful!
Good Morning Ghost Ranch!
Inspired by: laundry day, beautiful light, and my need to clean off my pallet!
Young Boys, Hot Afternoon
This is such a sweet memory for me. It is from a hike 5 years ago of my son and his friend from Rome. It was hot the day we hiked, and it was HOT in my studio yesterday when I painted this. I started with a transparent red underpainting in acrylic, and then did a graphic black sketch in acrylic. I decided to leave bits of the red showing through to portray the HEAT. I haven’t yet decided if the paintings is complete. My original plan was to paint over the black lines, but I kind of like them graphic.
Ghost Ranch – Morning Study
A cup of coffee, a grateful heart, and the chance to capture this glorious landscape in brush strokes all make for a great start to the day!
The Land of Enchantment never fails to amaze.
I LOVE to start my day with the sunrise, it is the best reminder that I have another day, and to make it count. Today is the longest day of the year, measured by hours of daylight. Days can feel long for different reasons. I painted today’s sunrise thinking about a friend who is saying goodbye to her mom. No question, our world is a better place because she made her days count and her blessings poured out because of her efforts.
Good way to start the day!
Cloudy Day, Sunny Disposition
