Last year members of the American Bar Association held a conference here in Taos. Art Friend Karla Matthews from Virginia arranged a studio visit for the spouses of the participants holding the meeting. We all laughed and had a fine old time - one huge coffee klatch! The next day some of the lovely ladies gifted me with one of the flower arrangements used as table decoration. I put the flowers in my studio thinking I would paint them (you can see the paint tubes in the upper right hand corner). I photographed them instead. Found the photo and decided this morning to pull a 15"x20" (image size) print. It is beautiful! Rich colors -- wipes away the winter blues! This print is available for purchase - $65.00, free shipping. Visa, Mastercard and Amex available through my studio for your convenience. To order call (575)758-7454.
STUDIO NEWZ: Yesterday added new paintings available for purchase at the Collector's Gallery on my website at www.donnaclairart.com Almost finished with the 36"x48" commissioned painting "Rio Chama at Abiquiu . Am considering having an open studio weekend over the Memorial Day holiday. If anyone is interested, just let me know.
18 March 2011 - Rio Chama, 36x48" (sold) -- On this early Friday afternoon am finally seeing how this painting can be completed. Here are the glazes; some parts of the painting are already finished - the sky and parts of the foreground. Made a pot of spaghetti sauce this morning, listening to Annie Proulx's Bird Cloud - a perfectly awesome way to end the week! Stay tuned to see this finished canvas and some new underpaintings. Spring has sprung! DC
