OUR SKY

Thea and I went for a drive this evening, looking for iPhone photo ops. This one, though, I shot just before getting in the car. This is the view from our yard, looking past the Picuris Mountains toward Truchas.

What a great day this has been! Started out by getting some shots of Great White Egrets, right by where I was camped by the river,

A quick breakfast of coffe and a danish, a brief phone visit with Thea, a little shopping, and it was off to the Rodeo. Igot some good research, including some of the best horse shots in ages, a bunch of action shots that will be the basis of some new “confections”, those little pen, ink and watercolor action pieces that i so enjoy doing, yet don't do nearly often enough, plus some portrait / character study material.

When the Rodeo was over, I jumped into Betsy and made today's painting right there in the parking lot, while the traffic cleared. After that, I drove around photographing the beautiful local desert and jagged mountain landscape along with some really fine cloud formations until dark.

Now I'm in Hastings' Bookstore, in a big, comfy leather chair, downloading images and creating my blogs. After this it will be time for dinner and my camp by the river… Life is Grand!

STORM BREAKING UP Daily Painting #580

I’m hitting the road! And you’re invited. Click Here to learn more.

Nope, haven’t quite hit the road yet, though I’ve been on it a lot. Hauling stuff from Santa Fe to Taos. Finished unloading the last big truck full today, then a quick drive back down to pick up Betsy and the Kelvinator, our GMC Safari van, both stuffed to the gills.

I need to make one more quick trip to pick up the last few items, take care of some details, and pick up panels at Artisans. Then back to Taos to finish packing and putting things away. A bit of recuperation, and it will be time, past time, to head to warmer climes.

This move has been a killer. I swear I’ve put on ten years. I feel like a thirty year old! Actually, I turned 71 today, the 4th. I swear the numbers got reversed somehow. Shouldn’t they read 17 instead?!? All kidding aside, I’m not bothered at all by turning 71. I’m prepared to face the beginning of middle age head on!

By the way, Betsy performed like a champ tonight on the drive up to Taos. Looks like she’s rarin’ to go. I know I am. And I hope you’ll all come along with us.

Today’s image is of the clouds breaking up on our drive yesterday:
