CHURCH AT TRAMPAS III

Number three in this mini-series of photographs is a black and white version of the first image. In this one, the tiny bird atop the cross on the left bell tower is more obvious due to the shifting of the clouds.

 

CHURCH AT TRAMPAS II

Here's another version of yesterday's subject, for Jay and the rest of you black and white aficionados.

 

CHURCH AT TRAMPAS

The golden rays of the setting sun wash across the Church of San José de la Gracia in Las Trampas, New Mexico.

On Monday, following dinner in Chimayo, we drove up through Truchas to Las Trampas on the high road from Santa Fe to Taos. When we arrived, clouds blocked the sun, but after a few minutes' wait, the sun broke through, briefly, before dropping below the mountains to the west, and turned mud into gold.

RANCHOS CHURCH

I just couldn't resist sharing one more image of this iconic adobe church. I hope you like it. If you've been following the last couple of posts on this blog, you already know about it, if not, just scroll down and read about it there.

Hasta mañana.

 

TAOS CHURCH, AGAIN

Here's another shot of the church featured in yesterday's blog. This one is also from my former daily photo blog, When a Painter Snaps.

Here's what I wrote at the time:

Five days ago, I posted an image of Thea and our friend, Jay Olson, in front of the Church at Ranchos. Admittedly, it was more snapshot than photograph. This is called When a Painter Snaps, after all.

Today, though, I decided to post my latest photograph of this beautiful building that has drawn both artists and photographers ranging from Georgia O'Keeffe to Anselm Adams. As for photographers, it's been shot with 8×10 and 4×5 cameras, 35mm cameras, and everything from pinhole cameras and Kodak Brownies to, as in this case, an iPhone.

Hasta mañana.

This is another watercolor inspired by one of my own photographs previously featured on my other daily blog, When a Painter Snaps. That is how I work. Some of the time. At other times, I work plein air, usually when traveling. Or I may work from brand new sketches or photographs. I like to keep myself guessing!

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.

LA CAPILLA, REVISITED / Daily Painting #1040

Watercolor / approximately 9 x 10 inches

Because half the students in my recent workshop were interested in learning watercolor and the other half in oil, I demonstrated in both mediums. this is the watercolor version of the subject featured a couple of days ago. This is my first watercolor in quite a while. You may be seeing more of them on here. Would you like that?

CHURCH, SAN JOSE DEL VADO / Daily Painting #981

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

Calfornia has some beautiful missions, true enough. But it's the simple, sculptural charm of New Mexico's adobe missions, churches and chapels that makes me want to grab camera or brush and get to work.
