Next I revisited and "reworked" my larger oil painting "Local
Flavor Jemez Springs New Mexico" on
16"x20" canvas and continued painting on my "work in progress" original oil painting of the St. Francis de Assisi Church in Golden, New Mexico which was established in 1837. I just finished the church in Golden which I've named "Sacred Beauty of Golden New Mexico" this past Tuesday. It is on 10"x10" gallery wrapped canvas with the sides painted venetian gold. The same day I began painting another original oil of one of the stained glass windows at the church in Golden which I will post about next.
"Stained Glass Golden New Mexico" and as I was painting got a text from a friend asking if the painting was finished yet and what the purchase price was. Long story short she told me she "fell in love" with the painting the very first post I put on Facebook and bought it telling me that the Blessed Mother had deep and special meaning for her. I am so grateful and elated that my "baby" has found a new home and assured that it will be well loved and cared for as well as cherished.
Thank you for visiting my art blog and for your continued support and interest in my art. I am in the midst of cleaning my art studio in preparation for decluttering by having a sale of quite a bit of my art to make room for lots of new paintings. It has already been a beautiful, wonderful and refreshing, renewing summer and predictions are for more rains in New Mexico, hopefully getting us out of the drought we have been in. I love painting the beauty that surrounds me everywhere here and the collectors and supporters of my art as well as all the friends and fellow artists I've made. I hope you'll come back again to see other surprises and opportunities happening the rest of this summer. Life is such a gift and I never want to take that gift for granted or all the opportunities and blessings my Creator has provided for me. Enjoy your summer and hope to see you returning again soon.
