Sunflowers At The Ranch

Sunflowers At The Ranch
6"x8" oil on Raymar panel  $150. SOLD

Artist Note

I joined a few of the guild artists
on a plein air painting trip
to the wonderful Nichols Ranch and Orchards.
Altitude 7,000 ft.
(Link at bottom)

This building is over 100 years old and was
the original home of the Nichols family.

Look what a fabulous view they!
The line of white in the distance is
the amazing White Sands National Park. NM

I was fortunate enough to enjoy 
a couple of the family pets
joining me in the shade

I did a couple of painting starts and decided 
the sunflowers were worthy of attention. 
I eliminated the porch for the sake of balance.

The new Blogger format is 
certainly different. 
I just spent over an hour 
trying to get the spacing
back to what I am used to.
