CLASSICAL GAS MUSEUM EMBUDO New Mexico IMG_0070 2.JPG

The Classical Gas Museum in Embudo, New Mexico. How many times have I hurried past? Someday, soon I hope, I’m going to stop, go in, take my time, and, maybe, get some good photographs.

My friend, photographer Steve Bundy, tells me it’s full of interesting old stuff.

Being a bit of old stuff myself, I expect I will thoroughly enjoy my visit.

ELEPHANTS CUKI AND MARA / Daily Painting #1144

Pen and Ink / Watercolor / 6 x 9 inches

OK, it's Confections time again. Be the first person in with a $100 bid, because the first hundred takes it!

So don't wait! Send your bid in an email to:

farnsworthgallery@newmex.com, or call Thea at 505 982-4561.

I'm having a great time with these, and apparently so are many of you.

I found these Elephants, Cuki and Mara In the Buenos Aires Zoo. By the time I had finished a full day of photographing and sketching in the zoo, I felt like taking a nap, too. But I didn't. Instead, I went street shooting along Avenida Santa Fe and walked all the way back to my apartment near the Recoleta Cemetary, about three miles. Tiring, true, but a great and productive day.

If you would like some expert help with framing your purchase, just call Thea, 505 982-4561, and she will take good care of you.

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

Here's another subject from the window at Richardson's Trading Post and Pawn in Gallup, New Mexico. Not really a found still life, it's more of a study. I know one thing; it got under my skin and I just couldn't wait to paint it.

ROAD TRIP Continued

After finishing off our green chile cheeseburgers, we beat it on down, past Three Rivers, through Tularosa, and on to Alamogordo, where we met Leo and his family and Betsy. No, not the famous Betsy VW, this was Betsy Chevrolet, the object of our quest. We had a nice, long visit with this nice family, then loaded the pickup onto the dolly, and off we went, back to Carrizozo. When we stopped there for gas, we noticed that the wheels of the pickup were cockeyed on the tow dolly. We had a hard time re-adjusting the tie down straps until a stranger came over and gave us a hand. And the chef from Kelly’s saw us and came over to offer his help. Pretty friendly town.

Next, we headed out for Soccoro, as we wanted to take the freeway where we would be able to more easily get help if we had any more problems than on the back road we had come down on. The sun was setting and we were treated to some beautiful sunset effects like the one above.

FRONT DESK BELL Daily Painting #366

I’ve always been fascinated, somehow, by front desk bells. Can’t resist ringing every one I see. Couldn’t resist painting this one! Besides, I had a brief career, among so many others, as a young man in Flagstaff, Arizona, as a bellhop. One of the most enjoyable jobs I ever had. I got to meet a lot of very interesting people.
