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.

This is the view from our home in Ranchos de Taos, across the valley of the Rio Grande del Rancho, toward Llano Quemado, the Burnt Plain.

If you haven't already, I hope you'll have a look at the daily photos on my newly reworked blog When a Painter Snaps…

The clouds come rolling over San Jacinto and into the Coachella Valley from the Pacific. A lone prospector and his burro make there way across what would later become Palm Desert. And I am reminded of the paintings of Clyde Forsythe that I so enjoyed and admired in my youth when I used to find them in Desert Magazine.

NOTE:

I spent quite a bit of time yesterday responding to comments on previous posts. For some unknown reason, most of them never showed up on the blog. I'm working on a solution. In the meantime, I hope all of you who have left comments here and on whenapaintersnaps know how very much your comments are appreciated and how important they are to me, especially when I'm tempted to falter.

It can be especially difficult to keep both blogs going on a daily basis while traveling. I can't always respond, but I always read and appreciate them.

I would love to see more dialog forming between those who follow my blogs and comment on them. Hint, hint.

The prayers are answered, rain comes to the Mesas. Not much rain, but enough for the patient, enduring Hopi farmer to raise his corn, melons, and squash. Not enough, though, to make the people soft and unappreciative, the reason, some say, that they settled here so long ago.

A long day got off to a slow start, followed by a very nice dinner with son, Buck, and granddaughters Chelsea, Brooke and Amanda, then a nice long visit with cousin Cheryl. So, a short post followed by a long night's sleep. I hope!

I made quite a few runs between Quartzsite and Bouse while camping in the area recently, and this was a familiar part of returning to camp after a day's exploration photography and painting.

Today, the 16th, is Thea's birthday, and we're off to the Handlebar J to try to kick up our heels! ;~) Yahoo!

That's what I did. I left Yuma. Headed North, planning to work my way over to Wickenburg for the big rodeo this weekend. I took it easy today, caught up on some reading, got Betsy's fluids topped off and her tires checked. Didn't make it over to the old Territorial Prison, or a couple of other things I wanted to check out, but my feet started itching and I decided to leave something for next time. Besides, what's Yuma without Thea?
