FLOWER SHOP, GAUCÍN, SPAIN / Daily Painting #1296

Flower Shop, Gaucín, Spain / Ink and Watercolor / 6 x 9 Inches

Gaucín is one of the beautiful white villages, los Pueblos Blancos, scattered like jewels across southern Spain's Andalucia autonomous region. It was here that I spent the night recently with our good friends, Peggy and Steve Immel, noted painter and photographer, respectively, from Taos. They had rented a delightful small apartment in the heart of Gaucín, home of a number of expat artists.

 

STUDY IN GRAYS / Daily Painting #1229

Study in Grays / Watercolor / 6 x 9 Inches. Slow , but delightful day. Short post. Long, late and leisurely lunch with Gari and Casey and Robert And Annie. Then Thea and I went to the bullfights. Her first. Says she's glad she went, but doesn't care to go again. Pretty disappointing, really. Some scrappy, though small bulls. One fairly good Torero.

Decided I'd rather paint these flowers I saw in the fireplace of the Santa Fe Fine Arts Museum just before we left.

DRIED BOUQUET / Daily Painting #1046

Watercolor / 5 x 7 Inches.

This is number twenty seven in the popular new “Confections” series. I'm having a great time with these, and apparently so are many of you.

Be the first person in with a $100 bid, and it's yours! That's right. The first hundred takes it. Don't wait!

Send your bid in an email to: farnsworthgallery@newmex.com,

or call Thea at: 505 982-4561

Touch here to see more confections.

Currently, I'm wrestling with just how I want to continue this blog. As you may know by now, I have really loved and thoroughly enjoyed the daily 6 x 6 inch paintings. And the recent Confections have really been a blast. But I am missing the chance to do more of these full-fledged watercolors. I would occasionlly like to work larger, too.

So. here's my thinking at the moment. I'm thinking I will switch from the current format of always doing the same size and the same begining bid, or, as has been the case with the Confections, one price fits all, regardless of size or complexity, to a more varied approach. One that fits not only my love of varied sibjects and styles, but differing sizes and mediums, as well.

I will be offering everything from tiny sketches to full sheet watercolors, to both smaller and larger oils, and just about everything in between. I hope it will be more entertaining than confusing, and that you will all continue to follow along.

By the way, I hope to be traveling again, soon, and will try to make my verbal input more interesting as my adventures unfold.

I hope you will all help me with this. I would love to hear your thoughts. I so appreciate each and every comment, as well as your bids! Please, don't be shy, join in. Let's make this blog as interesting as it can be, together.

Whoa! That's not a painting! That's an iPhone photograph, or iPhoneography. It was supposed to be on my daily photo blog, WHEN A PAINTER SNAPS. Somehow, I managed to get my pixels crossed. Now, what to do about it. Because of the many different ways that you receive these posts, simply switching the images could cause even more confusion. So. Here's the deal. I'm going to post today's painting on WHEN A PAINTER SNAPS. To see it, just click here.

Please accept my apology for the confusion.

and to learn more about it. Anyway, I parked in the shade of a jewelry store on my way back across Phoenix, and put all I had left into this little painting. So I don't have much more to say and I don't have a better title in mind. Besides, Starbucks is ready to close, it's 9 pm and I haven't had time for lunch, yet. See you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.

Please believe me” was one of the meanings attributed to pink roses during the Eighteenth Century in England, and I thought it would make a nice sounding title for a painting.
