Wow! My first Contest since my "Big Hotel Project"!

Sunlight on Flowers
16 x 20

From the minute I saw these geraniums in a small store off the road to Morah in Northern New Mexico, I fell in love. The light on these flowers was spectacular and I knew they were going to be on a canvas as soon as I got back.
Now that I have finished an extensive, one-year, local hotel project, I can now get back to my first love and spiritual journey, fine art painting.
The light in this painting is where my muse seems to always lead me.
I am now working on a series of reflections of light. After a long absence of being confined to hundreds of pen and ink drawings, I am now able to paint the kind of work that enriches my spirit and soothes my soul. I hope my paintings convey the spirit in which they are done.

OMG! Where has the past Year and a Half Gone!

Anne Land, "A Haven", created for Anne Lasko

My friend and fellow painter, Mark Malone, reminded me yesterday that I need to be blogging!
Well, no excuses here, just so many projects, I didn't take the time to let everyone know what the heck I was doing.
A year ago, June 1st, I contracted to do a very large City of Dallas Project, which I just completed.
Not really allowed to share the work until the project is public, I have been unable to share any of it, except to very close, personal friends. Maybe in December?
Still, no excuse. A large bat mitzvah that took a year of planning happened in March; an extensive project for Lamplighter School, lots of commissioned pet portraits and house portraits, individual drawings for Junius Heights Home Tour, shows too numerous to name and lots of painting in between. Whew, still no excuse.
Hopefully, I will get back to this rewarding piece of the journey.

"Middle of the Field"

                                 6 x 8
                    Acrylic on Cotton Panel

I saw these wild flowers from the road while driving up the Angel Fire Ski Road.  This road wound and wound and there was nothing but this bright patch.  Stopped by the side of the road and went wandering through 2 foot weeds to get to these spectacular little gems.

                     18 x 24  
             Acrylic on Canvas
                     $ 850

Sitting on the front porch of Casa Escondido in Chimayo, New Mexico, I created this Kokopeli (The God of Fertility) with the lovely view of the mountains in the background.   This trip was my first trip to paint in New Mexico and certainly turned out not to be the last.   Casa Escondida has been a fond place for several of the artists that I paint with.  This first trip was a true learning experience.   Composition and color mixing were among new things we learned.  This painting was actually an experiment in mixing the colors that are typical in New Mexico.

"Patio in Greece"

                               4 x 4
The sunshine in Greece is not unlike the sunshine in New Mexico!  Bright and clear, shining through the shadows of the trees.  I am in New Mexico now, getting lots of new painting material.  I have grown to love this state and the beauty it offers.  Karen and I are off to Taos today to see what kind of trouble we can get into in the galleries!  More of my miniatures are available at Random in Inwood Village, Dallas and at Rising Gallery in Dallas.
