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’?

I have been one busy Admin Girl, but it’s time to paint. If I can find my desk under the clutter before I lose interest again.  Wish me painting.

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.

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

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,

I rented a borrowedlenses and ‘stirred it up’ on a little roadtrip or two

July 15, 2012

on a little roadtrip or two,

Went out lookin for ponies and watching my honey fish with this great big Series L Lens, you know one of those big white ones you see all the photogs on TV  use.   You just really wish you could get your hands on one of those.  Just to see the difference between, big money lenses and what you have on your camera (even tho you love them to no-ends)

Well I rented one and for 2 days I got to play in my backyard……

Hope you enjoyed the story line, especially the pony part.  I came full circle right now.

Putting this altogether:

from loving horses all my life

to loving where I live

to have the opportunity

of writing a little photo book

Just an idea

to my friend Debbie Flood from Maine

July 1, 2012

who will be coming soon back to New Mexico.  I met Debbie about a year ago now and it has been so very fun getting to know her life through her art and her humor on line.  And now she is soon to be on her way back to Angel Fire, New Mexico for her second showing of original watercolor paintings of wonderful, stunning in colors and emotion Equine Art.

Here are some images of our sagebrush colt one year older.

I watched so many wild horses today on my computer and I am sooo keyed up to go out to Moreno Mustang Sanctuary on Saturday.  What a kick it will be to see you again, but to go experience wild horses as they live and move about freely, without too much people interaction.  I might even have a different lens to check out.

Just thought I’d say Hola from the Land of Enchantment

peace n abundance,
