30"x60" GARCIA PARK, New Original Oil (Completed 8/24/13)

30"x60" GARCIA PARK II -- New Original Oil Painting on fine Belgian Linen - wraparound painting.  Free shipping.  This painting can be purchased through my Studio 0r Online Gallery. 

My first large painting from Tesuque -- blocked the underpainting in at the end of May.  Determined it would be completed before the aspens turned. Extra blanket on the bed last night -- autumn is right around the corner!  This painting was a joy from start to finish.

30"x60" Work in Progress - GARCIA PARK II, Original Oil

PREVIEW!  GARCIA PARK II - 30"x60" Original Oil on Belgian Linen - work in progress.  This is the first of many large canvases to be completed in this new Tesuque studio.  The different phases of this painting are posted to my Art Journal along with accurate color notes.  This canvas is unusual in that it has two layers of rich, dark glazes instead of one.  Will begin the final painting today - laying in the opaque colors and highlights.  Art Friends will be the first to see this finished canvas.  If anyone has any questions or comments, just e.mail or call me personally at (505)983-8306.  Stay tuned!

STUDIO NO. 1313 - LLANO SAN JUAN, NEW 16"x20" Original Oil on Belgian Linen, Framed in Gold with Linen Liner.  Completed 8/13/13.  Click here to preview/purchase.

Hello from Tesuque!  Wow!  What an adventure so far!  A real monsoon season this year with hellacious thunderstorms - wind, hail - just everything!  Exciting - especially when the rain came through the roof in five different places - towels, buckets -- just short of having to get out the life preserver.  Phone and internet out for two days.  Roof repair this week sometime.  Went back to the  easel the next day as though nothing happened -- nothing monotonous around here; that's for sure!  Starting to  photograph the views from my Tesuque windows and will head down the road apiece this weekend - I love the little street sign that says "Margaritaville" along the dirt road.  Had a good time making this painting - it is for sale through my Online Gallery/Store and will be displayed on website Collector's Gallery - ENJOY!
