Some thirty years ago I did a painting of a New Mexico sunset, similar to this one, with very vivid colors. There was an old guy at a grain elevator who made the comment “you have quite the imagination” Hey! I didn’t create that! That’s the way it really was!
Anyway, this painting is based on a sunset that I saw out my back door. Sometimes the sunsets I see in this area are so vivid, so beautiful!

This is another small watercolor that is similar to the first of this series. It was kinda fun throwing in a touch of red here and there as red isn’t something I use much of.

Here is another one of the minis that I did during the wintertime this year. My Pop really liked this one.

During my wintertime burst of micro-paintings, here is one with some purple flowers…. no idea what they are, they just kinda emerged onto the paper… enjoy!

That’s a question that I’ve been asking myself lately. I’ve not done much in the “art” field. Been a busy Spring and Summer with other things.
During the wintertime, I was piddling around with watercolor. I did a couple of medium sized pieces and several miniatures. I thought I would share them with my readers…… just not all at once.
Here’s one of the larger ones.

This afternoon I decided to work more on this piece…… still don’t know what to call it. (If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know in a comment!)

As you know, I am not an oil paint fan. But I still do it from time to time. Last year I told my son that I would do a painting for him similar to one he saw in a store.
So, I began with the task of finding a large enough canvas that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Check! Next, I painted the whole thing gray. After that dried I began the process of figuring out how to lay it out and give it some drama and meaning. I looked at a lot of photographs dealing with the theme of the highway leading off into the horizon.( If you get a chance, go check out Tau Zero , this guy is spectacular! )
So far, this is as far as I have gotten…… stay tuned for more!
