La Bajada Sunset / Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

WOW!
One hundred down and thousands to go! One hundred paintings, over seven thousand hits, and we’re being seen in forty six countries. On six continents. Come on Antarctica, get with the program. And both old and new collectors all over the place. In just over three months. What a wonderful time to be alive.

My early days painting at Greasewood Trading Post on the Navajo Reservation on a private sponsorship, the year I spent on a mural for Wells Fargo Bank, and the past three months ,have been the highlights of my painting life. And it just keeps getting better.

Thank you so much to all our visitors, friends, family and especially our collectors.  We’ll be adding a video soon, with Thea talking about framing, and we hope to launch our new Gift Shop on the website a day or two after Thanksgiving. We have a lot of plans for the year ahead, and, of course, a new painting every day.

Thanks again, everyone. Come see us in Santa Fe!

Old Wolf Kachina / Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

This little guy is among the oldest Kachinas I have painted. Kweo appears in mixed dances, usually accompanying, appropriately, the deer and mountain sheep Kachinas. Originally, this one probably had a small, fluffy Eagle feather atop each ear, but they have long since been worn away.

Old Masters Study / Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

I have been working, off and on, for about thirty years, now, on a series of paintings based on the horses and occasionally other animals taken out of their original context within Old Masters’ Paintings. Can you identify the original this study is based on? The first person to email the correct answer will win a 6 x 9 Inch watercolor in this month’s contest. Click on Old Masters to see some of the paintings from the series, and to read the story behind them.
