HAVASU EVENING / Daily Painting #989

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

Two fishermen on the calm waters of Lake Havasu, Arizona, at the end of a peaceful, relaxing day. This was the view from Betsy as I camped just outside Lake Havasu City back in February.

SHARK’S TOOTH / Daily Painting #975

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

When driving into Taos from Santa Fe, Taos Mountain looms on the horizon, and off to the left is this jagged rock outcropping, looming above the valley of the Rio Hondo. My good friends, Cousins Gari Smith and Kayce Verde refer to it as the Shark's Tooth. What's your pet name for it? Does anyone out there know its real name?

WEST ON 10 / Daily Painting #961

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

Freeways are something I avoid whenever I can. Between Tucson and Phoenix, I much prefer the Pinal Pioneer Parkway, a more leisurely drive; scenic, and lined with giant Saguaro and Ocotillo Cactus and other beautiful desert flora.

Occasionally, though, time constraints find me driving up Interstate Ten. Usually boring, for the most part, it can be a more exciting and beautiful drive during the rainy season, when the skies take over. Especially toward day's end.

LA BAJADA / Daily Painting #949

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

One day, after driving Thea to Albuquerque to catch a flight to Phoenix to visit her sister, I headed north. Midway back to Santa Fe, I took a road off to the right that I'd long been curious about. The road turned south and ducked under the old Santa Fe railroad (now the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe) tracks, then around again to the east. Grazing cattle, a couple of wild horses and beautful blood purple blooming staghorn cholla beneath a wild and stormy, rain and promise filled sky, made for a fun photo interlude. This little painting, too is from that enjoyable afternoon, watching the traffic hurrying up and down La Bajada in the distance, oblivious, in their rush, to all the beauty, magestic and simple, so nearby.

I really don't expect anyone else to see the difference in this cloud scene. I felt the difference, though. After looking back over past daily paintings, I realize that the abstracts, and maybe just the act of painting every day, have been affecting the way I've been painting for quite a while.

The subtle difference is that it's now consciously deliberate. It's like having an entirely new set of tools, and they're not borrowed, they are all mine. Now, let's see what I else can do with them.
