so I started painting them, (wow am I out of practice painting from real life).  I use to do this kind of small, detail painting all the time.  Now my tastes are running to the more abstract and how the colors feel.

Like this beauty of an apple/olive/old gnarly  blossoming springtime tree, out of my imagination.

Getting my ideas in order for the ’30in30′    A few weeks back I  started getting my watercolor pallets ready for painting big.  I do love my big pallet that I have had for many, many years, well since college in my 30’s. All of my professors always wanted me to paint big, “bigger”, they would say.  So I bought a big pallet for the time I would paint bigger.  My little 5×7 to 8×10 size format of prefrence back then can be very limiting some times.  But I realized that part painting so small was because it was easier to pick every thing up or pull everything out when I had small children.

My paint/ pallete sorting was a big undertaking and time consuming and I won’t bore you with the details, (unless you are interested in it for another post?? maybe)…

I’ve also been taking a paper survey.  I want to make sure I am all set up to get started on this exciting challenge.  I am going to push myself to paint a little something every, single, day. !  And my son told me today that he is going to hold me too that statement.  A little daunting, but I really, really want to do this and I trully believe the timing is right.  2015 is going to be an incredible year and I’m excited to be getting my love of painting and therefore my business of selling my art off to a great start this year.

Just filling you in on what’s going on in my little space on this Earth called Sophia, Gia, Mother Earth.

Happy Winter Celebration

Surreal kind of selling my art this morning….

September 17, 2014

My honey is laying tile again and he hurts, so when he gets home he pretty much crashes after dinner.  Last night was no different only earlier.

so at 2am he gets up, and soon after

“Are you awake?” very lightly I hear through the dark..

After a pause,

had to think if I was or not,

“yes” I whisper.

 

“You sold

‘t w o’

pieces.

Mailbox money honey,

while you are sleeping ! !  !” he exclaimed.

And I’ve been dazy ever-sense .  Nice way to wake up for sure…..

I wrote her later:

“Sharon,
Thank you, Thank you so Very much.
I adore these pieces and so glad you do too. My honey woke me up in the middle of the morning about two am and all day I felt a dreamy sort of feeling. Don’t know if that makes any sense to you, but anyway.
As soon as I pick up these gilcees I will get them out and send you an email with a tracking number.
peace n abundance,
CheyAnne

when Sharon wrote back

“It certainly does make sense to me. New Mexico is so incredibly beautiful. It is my home state. These photographs capture the light and the Spirit of New Mexico.”

 

Oh what a compliment, thank you.  I first saw, really saw New Mexico when I was in my twenties on a road trip away from my young family for the first time.  Amazing light and rolling hills and glorious mountains, not to mention the weather.

Thanks so much for more inspiration to capture and post more New Mexico landscapes.

peace”

 

 

What a blessing people bring back when they purchase, with their hard-earned cash, a piece and two of mine.

 

 

feeling very blessed and abundant,

CheyAnne

 

Sun Setting from 8000 ft, northern New Mexico

March 30, 2014

I’ve been feeling very out of it these days, and I read somewhere on the net to watch the sunset and sunrise to get back in touch with feelings.  To trust that the sun will set and rise in the morning.

So I went out and watched the sun set from 7910 ft. elevation on this Earth

August????? where did you go?

August 30, 2013

My goodness,

And I thought I was really do ok for me with my postings, or so I thought.  And now here it is the next-to-last-day of August, 2013.

I guess I was so much busier than I thought I was:

Daylily n bokeh

can’t resist.

My daughter and her love, Kawika came to visit in later August and I am one proud mama.  She is growing or I ought to say ‘has’ grown into a remarkable young woman and she has found a mate for herself that is as wonderful and beautiful as she is.

I watered my gardens this way with such love and caring hoping they would show-off their finery just for these young lovers on their first road-trip out of Washington, and they did:

lots and lots of amazing sweet, nourishing rain-storms came and gave blessing to our part of the world.  And we loved it….everyone, even those people that are use to complaining about the weather, were quiet in their verbal blessing of joy and bliss, and we got more rain:

this is what the rains brought, Blue of Taos

A few years back the meadows of El Prado turned blue, but then they didn’t. Wildflowers come in waves of differences over the time of years.  Does that make sense.  Watching the patterns are so wonderful for me,  the progression of times changing and growing.

I adore these wild flowers and they really didn’t bloom this year at all,  (actually this was taken in July of 08)  but I was missing them, because they come in waves as well.  It all depends on rain, how much we get and when.  What time of year it rains, plays a hugh part in what blooms and what doesn’t in that season.

I love this even slightly fuzzy, because it reminds me of all the big storms we’ve been having.  I adore rain, thunder and no lightning storms. Actually I love the lightning too, but NOT this year, not here.

My crowning glory this year and Rachael loved them.

Lily’s are just incredible and I really had no idea until I grew these. And their fragrance is divine…….

My daughter and her mate were coming and having a bit of a few bumps in the road getting the final details together, so I got into the uplifting, think positive quote thing going on.  I posted this on Facebook for her.  and she made it and we got to meet Kawika.  What a  joyous way to spend August, 2013.

Peace n Abundance,

CheyAnne❧
