There are times when I must breakaway from classical portraiture and just play so here are a few pictures done completely freestyle from my imagination. The practice is perfect for experimenting with new techniques and ideas.

“Greek Church in Dos Griegos, near Eldorado” Landscape

This beautiful church is located only a hop, skip and a jump away from my studio – what a joy to be able to head into the preserve and have such a wonderful vantage point while painting.

“Galisteo Basin” Landscape

Here’s a painting done mostly on location. The Galisteo Basin is only 10 minutes from my studio. Below the mountain is the small village of Lamy, NM, where the Amtrak train stops at the old station. There’s a shuttle into town, so if you are ever traveling to Santa Fe, be sure to look into Amtrak for an adventure.

Field Study “Blooming Chamisa”

I have been trying to paint at least once every week outside. It’s such a beautiful time of year here in Santa Fe and this gorgeous chamisa was staring me right in the face. I smiled back :) and started painting.

Landscape Painting in Taos

Last week was spent in Taos, NM painting outdoors. What a different and challenging experience for me, as I work exclusively from life in the studio. The “doing” really freed me up and although the heat sapped my energy, at the end of the day, I was fulfilled by the activity of painting pictures so quickly. The group was totally fun and supportive – wonderful artists who were able to enjoy one another’s company in every scenario.

Here are a few of the 3 hour sketches we did on location:
