Reworking Some Challenges for "Let's Paint New Mexico" From 2015

To the left is one of the challenges I painted last year for "Let's Paint New Mexico" which I reworked this past week. I kept thinking it didn't seem complete and while busy with many other things I decided to add just a few touches and am now calling this done. It is an oil on 8"x10" canvas and available for purchase. If interested please contact me.

To the right is another reworked challenge painting from LPNM 2015.
This one is an oil painting "Distant Glow" which is presented and ready to hang on 10"x10" gallery wrapped canvas. It is also available for purchase directly from me, please contact me if you are interested.

Tomorrow is a special day in Old Town Albuquerque as they celebrate Albuquerque's birthday. I was asked to participate with a few other artists who have paintings at Essence Gallery and Boutique. I already had a prior commitment though said I would try to make it happen. As I type this there is an approaching storm so let's hope that weather doesn't dampen the mood and festivities for the big birthday celebration. We do still need the rain and it already has started out to be a beautiful spring.

Here is a picture of our first oriole arriving to feed at our hummingbird feeders in our backyard.

Thank you for visiting my art blog and your interest in my artwork.

Good for you for continuing to work on paintings you were not happy with from previous challenges. I have set aside a few myself but am thinking I might just be painting over them. I enjoy seeing your yard visitors and hearing about Albuquerque happenings Jo Anne. Keep up the good work.

Thanks so much Susan. I HAVE painted over some though not many. I do love the challenge painting though my favorites are my original paintings. I love nature, it's beauty and serenity. Thank you for leaving a comment and your friendship!
