STUDIO NEWZ: For the past four years the major share of my painting sales large and small have been made via the internet - through my website at www.DonnaClairArt.com As the result of this online success, I am no longer affiliated with McLarry Gallery in Santa Fe. All New Mexico sales will go through my Taos Studio at least for the next six to eight months. Am re-designing my website and the "COLLECTOR'S GALLERY" of new paintings will be online in early November. Am also working on two book projects which I hope to have completed by next spring. In the meantime, my studio will be open by appointment -- please call a day or two in advance of your visit. My sincere thanks to Art Friends near and far for your continued interest in my work! Donna

This is a study for a 30"x60" canvas.
This painting is available for purchase thru my studio.
Call (575) 758-7454 or e.mail.
9/15/10 --The second phase of this painting is what I call the "underpainting" - most of the colors have been mixed with MG Fast Drying White. Although it might look finished now as it is, I will work the top layers of oil colors into it as soon as these paints dry....five or six days. The dark greens are a combination of Burnt Sienna and Prussian Blue. The top sky colors are Cobalt Blue, Payne's Grey and MG White. The snow: MG White, Cadmium Yellow and a touch of Cadmium Red. The shadows on the snow: same combination as the sky colors. This painting should be completed in about ten days.

8 September 2010 - It's that time of the year again when I begin to block in new paintings to work on through the winter. Have had several field trips so far with a lot of new material. In the right hand corner of this photo is the new 48"x48" canvas called "POPPY LOVE GRANDE" which I will reveal in stages on this blog. This week I will also post photos of original oil paintings to be sold via EBay store. Stay tuned for previews of my new studio work. If you have any questions, just give me a call (575)758-7454 or send query via e.mail.
