My latest and greatest watercolor of a little chuparosa dancing over some gorgeous Echinacea. This is stage 4 with many more to go

This was the 3rd phase.  First being the thought and sketching, the choice of colors and paper and what I want to create.  I remember from college that my professor had us think clearly about what we wanted to do.  Even write it down.  I don’t do that very often, but it came back to me wanting to take this one slow and do it for me.

I want to create the gorgeous morning light that lit up these Echinacea flowers of purple, pink and bright glowing orange with a little wispy female chuparosa dancing across her stage.

this is where the idea started.  I love the stage of bright orange heads on these wonderful pinks and purples.

And I adore the background colors and feel in this one.  And this will be the little chupa I’m going to put in my painting.  Right now she is covered in the green misket and it will be very exciting when I get to the point where I can start to paint her.

I’ll keep you posted.

I’m also posting on my FaceBook pages

Hope your summer is rocking,

peace n abundance,

I sometimes see stories in my mind’s eye that I want to write down or write about.  Yet life, real life, my-real-life gets so full of everything I want to do, that blogging doesn’t seem to be high on the honey-doo list, (yes I have one for myself) ( but only in my head).

So I don’t blog, but it has been in my thoughts lately and that’s how things come into my life.  Is giving them thoughts and wonder and what-ifs.

and suddenly 2 of the newsletters I follow are about blogging challenges:

Take your pic:

Alex is an awesome teacher and great coach.


Problogger is amazing in all he knows, retains and teaches to us.


Haven’t checked them all out yet, but I am blogging

I’m just lucky I had time to blog this post.

Hope all is well in your world and you are relishing and delighting in summertime!  Full on hot-fun-in-the-sun kinda summer.

peace n abundance,




Looking back through my photos posted on my Blog in the past

December 29, 2014

I found these gems I forgot all about:

I just loved the colors of this early April Spring day here in El Salto of northern New Mexico.  I was taking a coworker home up a road I really never see and on this day the weather was magical.  Full of snow and spitting sleet.  Spring colors were popping everywhere and acequia’s were starting to run full of snow melt.

Across the road the misty air was thick with moisture.

I still get excited every single time I spot a horse

On another spring time day, but this one down in Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico, my honey was tiling the farmers new house and I was sneaking up, or rather trying to sneak up on the new spring lambs down by the riverside.  Aren’t they just so fun and frisky?

Spring is just my favorite season of all and now that winter has finally arrived I’ve started dreaming of spring.
