My Mountains - day 27

My Mountains
6x8in oil on canvas panel $130.

The view from my studio at the "golden hour."
I never get tired of it.
Organ Mountains, Las Cruces, NM.

Artist Note,
Only three more days to go in the challenge.
The Facebook Challenge was on at the same 
time and I thank everyone who invited me 
to take part. I would have loved 
to have participated, but it just would 
have been too much on top doing this 
challenge PLUS working.

I must be getting old when I cannot
do everything I want to!

Old or sensible!

Sensible is old!


  1. Love the richness of the foreground. We are both lucky to have such lovely views.

  2. How I wish I can look out my windows and see these beautiful mountains!!! I can understand why you never get tired of seeing them. You painted them so beautifully and you're doing so well with the challenge!!!

  3. Fabulous view and painting Julie!

  4. A beautiful view indeed! I don't ever get tired either of it-how could you?

  5. Julie, your work is beautiful and I am such a big fan of yours. My father bought property in NM many years ago, Rio Rancho.. it was all the rage in the 70's. I held on to it, 2 acres. Maybe someday we will return. I understand about face book, someone nominated me a second time, so sorry I accepted. All the best to you, Joan

  6. I think those mountains represent your Art Julie! They are strong, beautiful and inspiring!

  7. This is a beautiful little painting--colors so harmonious!

  8. with age comes wisdom, (hopefully) and wisdom and sensibility skip on down the road hand in hand. Beautiful mountain. Love everything about it.

  9. Old? I can't keep up with you ... I turn my back and you've posted several times! Such a chain of wonderful images!! Woo Hoo!

    My youngest granddaughter asked me what it's like to be old? I told her, "I don't know, I haven't been old before, I'll let you know when I find out."

  10. What a fantastic view. Love how you captured the last light on the mountain.

  11. I agree with Kathryn Townsend. It's a wonderfully harmonious painting and I'm truly enjoying the warm colors that you brought into the clouds. It really works well with the green hue within the sky. Beautifully made!

  12. Great feeling of warmth and sunshine.

  13. Looks an amazing view, especially at the Golden hour, and you've captured it beautifully. Old never x
