Quick Trip from New Mexico to Nevada

Busy the past week making a quick trip over to our daughter's in Nevada.  Here's a picture of beautiful New Mexico on 13 March 2012 near Continental Divide, New Mexico. While in the Las Vegas area we visited our favorite art supply store, Dick Blick on the 15th picking up a few items before leaving for the drive home to New Mexico on the 16th.  Thankfully the weather was gorgeous both days of our traveling. Busy week ahead and the passing of current storms supposed to bring warmer temperatures and more springlike weather.

"Curious Inquisitor" Original Acrylic 8x10" Acrylic on Canvas

"Curious Inquisitor"
A couple days ago on Friday my husband and I went to the Rio Grande Arts & Crafts event at Expo New Mexico after having lunch at Sandia Resort.  I got so excited, motivated and loved talking to quite a few of the artists there. It's amazing how being around other artists just stirs up those creative juices.  This morning I thought I'd try something different and new for me and the result was this 8x10" original acrylic painting on canvas I'm calling "The Curious Inquisitor".  I am enjoying life, being creative and new and wonderfully happy times.

Original "For Eva" Painting as a Memorial

"For Eva"
I started this pastel floral yesterday, added pen and ink and did not like the end result when I thought it was finished yesterday. This morning as I sat in my art room looking at it and thinking of my friend and neighbor, Eva, I added acrylic to the background and some of the flowers and it became "For Eva" mixed media.  She died recently, only 37 years old leaving behind a wonderful husband and four children. I pray God will watch over and protect her family and bring them comfort and joy at memories of her.  I will miss her honesty, our talks, her smile. Peace be with you Eva.

Original Acrylic on Watercolor Paper "Sonoran Desert Museum AZ Parrot" Painted in 2004

Original Neely Gomez
Painting Copyright 2004
So this morning thought I would get back into the swing of things by doing some artwork, a couple of different projects.  What I discovered is that I'm still extremely tired from our whirlwind trip from New Mexico to Oklahoma and back and not quite in the ZONE yet.  Looking at this original acrylic painting I did on watercolor paper in 2004 after we made a trip to the Sonoran Desert Museum in Tucson, Arizona I really like the color and style.  Not sure what my "style" really is yet but I'm definitely still a work in progress and I AM progressing (smile).  I usually have delayed reactions to things so think I need some more time of just rest and relaxation.  I will keep you posted.
