6x8in oil on canvas board $125.
This was painted from a photo and memory.
The shower has just passed over and the air was clean and oh... so fresh.
When I paint from one of my photos, I close my eyes and try to go
back to what I was feeling when I took it.
This is a lovely little stream just on the outskirts of Taos, N.M.
I remembered the sounds of the water and smell of the wet earth .
There was a breeze and a tractor starting back up after the rain.
It was the red of the wild flowers which attracted me.
They were fenced off so I never knew what they were,
but they sure looked like poppies.
