April and May Update

April was a month of rest and recuperation although I tried to keep the creative juices flowing by doing some sketches.

The Blue Portal in Old Town Albuquerque advised me they had sold some of my art I'd placed there so in preparation of needing to replace items I painted this mini oil painting on 4"x4" canvas and it's little easel (shown on the right). I call this one "Sacred Chimayo", it will be delivered to The Blue Portal after this Memorial Day holiday next week.

I'm still working on my new website hosted by FASO and am in the process of uploading more of my artwork there and updating all my social media online sites.

Spring arrived with our first hummingbird siting April 7th this year. We enjoyed some beautiful songbirds as well as Western Tanagers shown in the photo to the right.
We've also had quite a bit of rain this past year bringing quite a lot of green and beautiful bright colors to our yard.

In May I got back to painting trying to catch up with "Let's Paint New Mexico 2017" and it's challenges. I started out with Challenge 6 "Trucking in Seco" an oil painting on 8"x10" canvas panel shown to the left.
Challenge 7 (shown to the right) was fun and I enjoyed painting the shadows and light cast on our Sandia Mountains overlooking Albuquerque. Aptly named "Sandia Shadows" this is an oil painting on 8"x10" canvas.



Next I did some sketch studies for Challenge 8
because in all honesty I was not very inspired by the photo sent which led me to "go small" for the actual painting done and submitted for this challenge. So to the right is my oil on 6"x4" canvas I mounted to a watercolor postcard. The title for this one is "In Memoriam".

Just this weekend I have completed two more challenges for LPNM, the first for Challenge 9 is an oil painting on 8"x8" gallery wrapped canvas with the sides painted black which is titled "Fall Along the Jemez River" (shown to the right).  Also done this weekend was Challenge 10, an oil on 8"x10" canvas titled "Jemez Valley Vermillion" (posted to the left).

Thank you for visiting my art blog, come back again soon. If interested in purchasing any of my artwork please email me to arrange payment, visit Dr. Brian Dennis' DDS office, The Blue Portal both in Albuquerque, The Range Cafe in Bernalillo, NM or online at Fine Art America.
