Painting is an ongoing challenge. Learning new techniques, using new tools and colors makes me happy. I love using texture and bright colors in my paintings. Living in the Southwest most of my adult life probably has something to do with that! The colors out here are intense and lighting is absolutely incredible especially before and after the storms. New Mexico is a beautiful state and I am planning to take several trip this summer to explore its fabulous nature. One thing that makes painting NM landscapes so attractive to me is that they are abstract on their own. The shapes and colors and textures look like they are from another planet in a lot of places.

Again, I used lots of purple and had to stop myself from overdoing the silver roses.
