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.
