Santa Fe #19

Here is the sketch and the painting.  I might prefer the sketch!  I apologize for the blank page you got...if you did.  I bumped the key board and off it went! The painting is 6x9.
It is available at this address:

Day 18

This was a hard painting for me. It took me all day! I had some new boards and had to do something to give it some tooth so it wouldn't be so slick.  This is larger too, than what I have been painting on.
It is 6x12".  I also added the sketch and the photo that I used.  i changed up the background. It had too much green for me!

All of my gates and doors are availabe at this address...along with some other art.

Santa Fe #17

This is the church at Chimayo, NM.  Is in the Santa Fe Area.  A well known church there.
People from all over go just to see it.  I wanted to mainly show the gate, so one side of the bell tower is left out. This is a beautiful place to be.  The back is very interesting too. Lots and lots of crosses hanging everywhere. all over the fences and columns. People leave them there with their loved ones names and prayers on them.  Chimayo has a wonderful place to eat too!
This is 9x6 on gessobord.
All of my Gates and Doors will be available at this address, as well as other art.

All of the Gates and Doors will be available at this well as other art.

Santa Fe #14

Here is Day 14...
Nearly half way through! I am beginning to like the acrylics more. 
I am learning more about them.  I like the quick dry, and cover up!  and the bright colors.
This is 6x8 on gessobord.

Santa Fe #12 and 13

I didn't get to post yesterday, we were canning peas. What fun! that is a lot of hard work! Plus it affects the allergies. But we got them done and had fun as a family doing them.  Here is Day 12 and 13 combined. I think i have a new favorite for today.. Day 13.  Maybe because it was pretty hard to paint the steps behind the gate! Another challenge!
These are both 6x8 on gessobord, painted with acrylics.  I am beginning to appreciate the acrylics a little more. It is just so different that watercolors.

All of the Gates and doors will be available at this well as other art.
