CALIFORNIA SAND HILLS STUDY Daily Painting #809

CALIFORNIA SAND HILLS STUDY

Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

If you would like to own this painting, just email your bid to: farnsworthgallery.newmex.com

There are giant, white wind generators, or as some would have it, bird choppers, all atop these hills, now. I chose to paint this little study of the hills as i remeber them from previous trips between Palm Springs and Los Angeles. I don't know enough, yet, to take sides in the argument for or against these modern windmills, but the hills are equally as interesting with or without them. Maybe I'll include them in another painting someday.

Most of the day was spent attempting to resolve the issues with my email. Not much luck, so far. Will try again tomorrow. Wish me luck.

An acequia is an irrigation ditch. It carries water to the fields in and around Taos, as well as serving as a focal point for the social life of the community.

We had a nice, leisurely start this morning. Breakfast at La Posada, followed by photographing around the hotel and the town. We then drove straight through to LakeHavasu City, with a couple of brief stops for photography. LHC was packed, so we drove on to Parker, where we got a room, had some dinner and turned in.

Old bottles. A great excuse to play with colors, textures, shapes and shadows. These were in a four shelf unit full of odds and ends in an antiques mall in Riverside, California.

A couple in a small cafe in Argentina have a late night conversation over cups of espresso. Maybe not quite street photography, but definitely a part of the great pastime of people watching.

SONRISA

Peru. Another place I’d like to visit again. Especially the area from Cusco to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. Then there are all the places I haven’t visited yet. Guatemala, Ecuador, Uruguay, Chile, all are tempting. So is Mexico. The parts I know and those still unknown to me. Where shall I start? How shall I go? We’ll know soon, as I’m getting close to setting a departure date. Or just departing. Maybe it’s time to throw a dart at a map.

JUST CHECKING

How many times do we run across the term “sidelong glance” when reading. It can have many meanings. In conversation it can be a gentle dismissal or it can be a subtle flirtation. In this case, it’s a quick, subtle appraisal. But of what? Another woman’s outfit? An attractive man? A captivating window display? What do you think?

GALLERY SHOPPING

While I was still living in Santa Fe, I noticed a potential gallery space, went around the block, and took a quick couple of shots in passing. I later made an appointment to see the space, but didn’t quite see how I could make it work for me at the time. Close, but not quite. I still feel an urge to reconsider it, but have decided that travel is more important to me at for now.

One of the most endearing features of Southwestern and adobe architecture  is the soft, curving, undulating lines of this hand made, natural, non-manufactured approach to building.

When trolling through my research for subjects to paint for this blog, I stumbled across the image that was the inspiration for this painting. I could hardly wait to get into it.

ORGANIC ABSTRACTION

Another in the my realist abstractions, in which non-objective “subjects” are approached as though they were actual, concrete objects, and painted accordingly. Once again, I’d love to hear what you see and or think when you see this.
