Juniper in Full Light

9x9 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100.
I have been missing for a couple days, only because I had no reliable internet. I am here in New Mexico. A big thank you to Wes and Marilynn for graciously allowing me to stay in their beautiful home. First let me say I thought New Mexico would be warm at this time of year.....but noooooooo, it is far from that. One moment it is sunny and 55 and the next there is a huge dust storm with tumbleweeds aiming for me like a bulleye and the next minute its is snowing horizonatly. So much for warm! I arrived late Monday (through snow and backed up planes at Denver) and began right to work. the light is fantastic here!

Thanks Jill, Paulo and Donna!
When the sun is out here the light is strong and colorful. The conditions change so rapidly it really keeps me on my toes! Thanks for checking in!

This is really gorgeous!

Yep, that's the weather we have around this part o' the world in the springtime...sun, wind, snow, repeat every day.

Every artist who has gone to paint in New Mexico has been attracted to the light. Welcome to the club. :)
