My Santa Fe Indoor Studio almost ready to show to the public. Note the “workstations”: easel, graphics and drawing table ( built by my son many years ago), couch and bookcase for reading my art and math books, framing counter and cleanup area and computer desk.
Watch for 2023 Announcement. Annual event in Las Campanas. After three years without this event due to Covid, we returned. The show is a gala event. In 2022 I demonstrated out on the patio and thoroughly enjoyed this. Flyer created by Las Campanas member, Susan Robeck, to be used as publicity for this 2022 Las Campanas Community Fund auction and perhaps the 2023 event
Painting at the Santa Fe Ski Slope during Aspen Season., Oct 2021. A nice woman wanted to take a photo so I asked her if she would take one with my iphone for me. Painting here inspired me to do a couple of paintings with more in my head, ready to begin.
Collection of several water landscapes plus Aspen paintings, which seem to complement the water paintings. Over the years I have found myself drawn to the waters again and again. Perhaps this is due to my youth in the Northwest and Hawaii, always in sight of the ocean. Or we camped out at rivers every weekend. Even in NY initially we had a home right on the water and then I spent summers at the Ocean. But even more important for a painter is that as a subject, water lends itself to capturing light and motion, so important in a landscape.
This wall also has small studies and I also included on the wall the newest Santa Fe River plein air painting. Initially I felt it was unfinished, but the more I looked at it the more I was drawn to it, Perhaps the freshness of it as a plein air work allows it to remain easy to look at and live with.
My new favorite place to paint. This river is rushing due to heavy rains and the sound is soothing. Locals are enjoying the unusual swimming/wading hold. See recent works painted here. My friends suggest that I paint this photograph. Perhaps I will (with me in it!).
