The echo cave

The more I look at this the more I want to keep it. Or is it because I love orange? This is the echo amplitheater in Abiquiu, New Mexico and it brings back loads of memories. I spent many hours here with my family yelling into the cave and laughing at our silly echoing voices.

First successful landscape

I'm really happy with this one. I think I'm onto something because I tried a new technique. It's not my usual scrubbing and stressing over the surface. Well, there was some of that, but I'm getting where I want to go this time. This is a scene in Abiquiu, New Mexico. I started to paint this series since I've been homesick for the high desert. Painting this really takes me home.

Another Landscape

This is an imaginary landscape. It's gone through a few changes but I'm happy to stop here.
