Painted Desert hanging on the wall

I love the way they look on the wall. The only hard part is photographing the quad without getting any reflections. Here is the best I could do.

Small aspen paintings on the wall

This is what 5 little aspen paintings look like displayed together. I think they are wonderful in my small hallway.

"Volcano" Nude Female Painting

My son asked me what this painting was about and I asked him what he thought it was. Well, he thought it was a painting of a volcano with a meteor. SO here it is "Volcano". 24"X36" ACrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. Ready to hang.

Tempus Fugit

Yes, time flies. I have caught myself saying this way too often in the last 6 months or so. I feel like I am running on fumes - but still moving forward! I am looking forward to that day when my kiddos will be able to help me with canvas preparation, and final steps in painting process - like putting screws in the back of the canvas frames and wires and varnishing! That will be the day! If you know of a willing apprentice - send her/him my way - plenty of work around here :)

I love painting horses. Here is an older painting of mine - also one of my favorites. Hopefully this weekend I will get to paint a bit more - my other obligations have been overwhelming and having allergies certainly does not help. I keep wondering when did I become allergic to this beautiful New Mexico dust and dirt. Every time wind blows I end up blowing my nose from the time I get up until I go to bed. I think I am going to go make me some tea with a few big spoons of native New Mexico honey...
This painting is sold.

"Painted Desert Quad III"

Obozavam pustinju. Otvoreni prostor, jarke boje, rastinje s ostrim trnjem i bodljama. Ovdje nema tornada, niti nekih drugih vremenskih nepogoda. Sunce sija 300 dana u godini. Ko je ne bi volio? :)

"Painted Desert Quad I"

This painting was inspired by a reference photo taken on our trip to Chaco Canyon in northern New Mexico several years ago. The landscape is abstract as is, and it is absolutely amazing.

Photographing this quad is a nightmare! So many reflective metallic paints...

"Unconditional Love"

My daughter threw up all night last night. It is so hard on a parent to see their child suffer. She is sleeping now - hopefully will feel better today.

Looking Up to Her

A daughter is a bundle of firsts that excite and delight, giggles that come from deep inside and are always contagious, everything wonderful and precious and your love for her knows no bounds.

I like to do paintings in a series. This is the first one in a series of paintings about love, motherhood, parenthood and relationships.

A glory is an optical phenomenon appearing much like an iconic Saint's halo about the head of the observer which is produced by light backscattered (a combination of diffraction, reflection and refraction) towards its source by a cloud of uniformly-sized water droplets. The association with a halo is not coincidental, but derivative, though a real glory has multiple colored rings.
The angular size is much smaller than a rainbow, about 5° to 20°, depending on the size of the droplets. The glory can only be seen when the observer is directly between the sun and cloud of refracting water droplets. Hence, it is commonly observed while airborne, with the glory surrounding the airplane's shadow on clouds (this is often called The Glory of the Pilot). Glories can also be seen from mountains and tall buildings, when there are clouds or fog below the level of the observer. The phenomenon is related to the optical phenomenon anthelion.
