So tonight I edited, after painting

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’


Mailbox money honey,

while you are sleeping ! !  !” he exclaimed.

Turquoise New Mexico Sunset natural watercolor

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

I wrote her later:

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,

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.




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,



too, too long

I’ve been neglecting my blog, my art, my exercise too.  I just cannot fit it all in.  How do people who work 30- to 40 or more hours every single week get anything done’?

Two Yupo watercolours and our coyote

February 10, 2013

It’s been another long week because I’ve had a new crud this week.  I’ll tell you, I Am Sick of being Sick.  I am well now and Will Stay that way (I tell myself over and over). I painted this weekend and it feels so good.  First I’m finishing my ballerina “Flooded in Light” and will soon take photos and post her for sale.  Then I pulled out some Yupo paper I still have and traced a few of my favorite sketches.  This one

Under the Milky Way

Under the Milky Way

this was a combo of a few sketches put together and I really had no idea where it would go, but that’s the beauty of Yupo paper.  When you don’t like it you can wipe it down and start again.  The marker lines stay, but I always kinda like my lines in pieces and always debate whether to erase them or not.   How do you handle that?

This image is taken propped up on the window,

This other piece is a favortie sketch of mine and after looking at the painting thur being photographed I think I want to start over on this one and even change the initial sketch a bit.



"July in Rachael's lap"

“July in Rachael’s lap”

the whole bottom leg thing bothers me.  I need to bring her pink shorts straight out and give her a bit of a calf where the kitten is lying.  don’t you think?

And I saw our little female coyote again this week. As I went to take the trash out I saw just her back through the meadow so I snuck back in real quick, grabbed my camera and as quietly as I could got back out side.  I made it to the top of the drive way knowing she would cross somewhere close enough to capture her.  Little did I know she would walk right towards me

she turned up the drive

she turned up the drive


right towards me

right towards me

unfortunately I shake a bit too much with my longer lens.

If you notice her ear is always cocked towards me because she could hear me the whole time and this last time she looked right at me

'before she faded away'

‘before she faded away’

I can’t add any of these to my Etsy site because they just aren’t clear enough.

This is the reason I am putting out to the universe that I could really use a camera with image stabilization and a higher quality, bigger lens……


Hope your week was happy and healthy and the next one is even better.

peace n abundance,
