I was back out at the Taos Art Musuem at the Fechin House. The new show there is work by Walt Gonske. He was born in 1942 and is originally from the east coast. After a career as an illustrator, he moved to Taos in 1972. I don’t really have a lot to say about […]
Working on using thicker paint. I will eventually get to nice strokes and heavy application. It is a relatively brief exercise. Wish I could get it under a couple hours of painting time. I guess I take breaks. I would love to make the same painting in 25 or 35 minutes. I am just oddly […]
Mini Art Show at UNM-Taos
I put together a mini art show at the administration building at UNM-Taos. The place was a little drab and I had some new work. It was a spur of the moment thing. I had some fresh painting laying around the house and they needed to be somewhere.
Taos Mountain Tiny
Spent the day on the verge of a cold. Not quite sure where it is going. Not getting bad. Not getting better. Have been stuck in the house all day. Went outside to paint a little. Just needed to feel like I did something today. I wanted to focus on the sky because it […]
Another day with the portrait group. We meet at Ray Vinella’s place. It is a nice group to spend a few hours with. Our model had a difficult morning but performed like a trooper. She was rock steady and was a pleasure to paint. Her mother is also a painter and stopped over to visit […]
Taos Portrait Artists Meet
Finally got myself back to the Taos Portraits Artists group. It was a full house. Lots of new faces! We also had a great model, Sophie, from Taos Ski Valley. Actually, she just works at the ski valley.
Back at the Taos Portrait Society
Finally had an opportunity to return to the portrait society painting group on Saturday. It was a Ray Vinella’s studio in Taos. It was great to meet him for a moment. The subject was Mae Won. She was amazingly beautiful.
Well, I spent a little time at the portrait group today. Carlos was our model. He is also an artist. He did a great job. Today, I was really considering grabbing myself a parallel palate. It was a bit odd getting the right colors because of the light in the room. I should really appreciate […]
Sunday was a lazy day. I really only accomplished a little laundry and this slight image. Oh, I did make up a model release form and I did run into a friend that I have been dying to work with. She is gorgeous and will be a great subject for a few actual paintings. The […]
I finally made it to the Taos Society of Portrait Artists group slightly early. I was actually able to set up my stuff before the crowd arrived. Unfortunately, I changed my mind about where I wanted to be and had to find a place next to the glaring front door and a bit back. It […]
Pilar in winter
It was a cold and grey day in Pilar but the yellow grasses and red willow branches brightened up the landscape.
This week I wanted to start making time to paint. I don’t usually schedule a time to sit down and make an image. This has probably been a mistake. This image is from a trip to Abiquiú. The view is pretty familiar to people who have driven down Forest Road 151.
