"Respite Along the Trail" from City of Rocks, NM

City of Rocks!  

New Series - from NM State Park - City of Rocks. A friend and I drove out to City of Rocks on a crisp November morning. The forecast was true to it's word and it warmed up into the mid 60's an amazing day to paint! 

We drove around and had to see the place first. I had never been there, so always explore first. We were met at arrival time by a new friend Les Brandt. He was on fb and wanted to observe and learn more about Plein Air. 

A casual comment about selling my current pochade box and upgrading into a lighter one; turned into a purchase! I have a new Strada Mark ll easel on the way and he got a set for Christmas.  

Blond Cliffs in Shadow



My painting Blond Cliffs in Shadow went to the Fall show; and upon it's return it SOLD! Thank you Kathleen Key!  



Historic Fort Stanton - Stone Church

A chance encounter while plein air painting at Fort Stanton has evolved into a new Gallery opportunity! I am very excited to have my paintings on display at the Museum at Fort Stanton. There are 8 - 10 original paintings and the museum also has prints available for purchase. 

From the Fort Stanton series - I also created products in my VIDA collection. There are Totes, Men's Tie & Pocket Squares, Pillows, Coasters, Scarves and more! Click over to the VIDA products and see the Fort Stanton Products. 

I had painted there a year earlier and returned in July this year. My collection of reference photos is growing and will continue to grow of the historic fort. It is an excellent place to paint en plein air. 

The big festival Fort Stanton Days is in July and it is my intention to be a vendor there!
