LLANO QUEMADO / Daily Painting #1039

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

In Llano, just across the valley from where we live is La Capilla de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, featured in yesterday's post. And just past it, today's subject, a stormy sky, a coyote fence, and the winding road.

DESERT ROAD / Daily Painting #1027

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

Now, here's something I can hardly pass up. I always wonder where a dirt road goes, what mysteries, what surprises it might lead to. I wonder, what is around that bend?

I don't know where this one came from. I just felt like doing it. Felt good, too. Sort of like an oil version of my confections, those ink line and watercolor wash pieces that I haven't been doing enough of lately. Well, I'm thinking pretty seriously about getting in a plane headed south and giving Betsy a little rest, even though she hasn't complained even once since good ol' Austin Stockdale in victorville made her all better!

I've never been to a Latin country for Semana Santa, and I think that is something I would like to experience at least once. I was in La Peñita de Jaltemba during Easter, back in '73. But that was just a matter of city dwellers from Guadalajara and Tepic coming to the beach to cover it in litter and themselves in multiple layers of sunburn. Neither was a pretty sight. No, I'm thinking more along the lines of religous ceremony and ritual, saints paraded through the streets and all that.

The difficult thing is deciding where to go. Mexico beckons, as always, but so do Guatemala, Uruguay and Argentina. Not to mention Spain's Pueblos Blancos. And only a couple of days to decide. If any of you know of a good house sitting gig, that could be the deciding factor.

I had a nice visit with Jim Ballinger at the Phoenix Art Museum, whom I had not seen in several years. The Museum has grown some 400% since I last visited. Amazing!

Then it was off to a most enjoyable dinner with my good friend and collector Tim Thomas. Lots of reminiscing and catching up! Tim follows this blog, and I swear, he knows more about what I've been doing and where I've been than I do!
