Virga - Oil on Board - 11" x 14"
This little painting was done recently. It really typifies the wonderful clouds we get here in Santa Fe. I am always amazed at the sky. In fact, I find myself wondering why I even bother with the land but I then realize, what makes the sky so stunning is what is also below it. So, I continue to paint land and sky. In this case, very little of the high desert land was necessary. Hope you like it. It is available at Arroyo Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Other Side of the Sierras - Oil on Board - 18" x 14"
This is the under painting in the verdaccio method. I made my own gesso from Marble Dust and Rabbit Skin Glue. The final results after several glazes and opaque application is below. This painting can be seen at Wilde Meyer Gallery, Scottsdale/Tucson, Arizona

This plein air painting was done by the roadside. The mountains jutting up from the fields made me pause. It's atmospheric quality that day was unusual for the desert in Southern Arizona.
