Land of Enchantment - Memories of NM, Natasa Vretenar


The exhibit at The Carrot is over. Thank you so much Carrot Gallery for showing my work! 
Today I also changed the exhibit at The Steeps Tea Lounge on Whyte Avenue. This one features many paintings inspired by beautiful New Mexico.

I have a deep connection with NM - spent many years living there and had wonderful time and experiences there. It is a special place for me.

A few years ago Dee Sanchez from NM started a painting group - Let's paint New Mexico and I joined. We painted many different scenes from photos provided by members of the group. It is very interesting to see how each painter interprets the same scene and shows their own unique style.  Many of the paintings from this group's challenges are included in this exhibit.

    1. I took a few more reference photos for old trucks in NM on my last trip there! I have a feeling there will be more paintings of them soon :)
