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

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.

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.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to all our collectors, commentors, and followers. Your support and encouragement are greatly appreciated and contribute more than I can tell you to my ability to come up with a new painting every day. I’m having the time of my life as an artist, and delighted to know that so many are enjoying my work as much as I enjoy creating it.

Stay tuned for some interesting and exciting new developments coming in the next week or so. Don’t forget to let your friends know that they, too, could have a brand new painting to view with their morning coffee.

Thanks again,

John and Thea
