I know I need to post and

August 26, 2014

feel bad because I haven’t.

I love to write and post images of either my captures from my camera or a new painting I’m working on.  Lately I get so wrapped up in just painting or editing that I don’t have the time to, or the energy either.  Life gets busy and wonderful and quite lovely and it’s hard to write about art when you are just busy living it:

so random images ahead:

A brand new customer came to Etsy and found a watercolor tree of mine that she loved. She asked me more about sizes and prices and we came together on a custom original  12×16 with a 1″ border for $65. plus shipping.  She loved it so much that she sent me a picture and I just adore seeing it framed up, don’t you?

This incredible female fox was living with her 3 (that I counted) little cubs next to a road a friend lives on.  This was taken through a fence, she is not fenced in at all.  It was the only way I could capture her with my little Sony.  Isn’t she amazingly beautiful?

Told you it would be random

too, too long

October 20, 2013

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’?

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:

Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico

Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico

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

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.

New Mexico Penestom

New Mexico Penstemon

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 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,

morning light n evening glow in my New Mexico

July 31, 2013

gardens.

I adore flowers, I always ALWAYS have.  I paint them, I notice them, I want to crawl into them,  I love the fragrances of them, the colors of them.  I just Adore Flowers

'this is what I woke up too'

‘this is what I woke up too’

I bought this daylily blooming last summer and set around my yard for a few days.  You know to get the feel of where it wants to be.  Always somewhere I can see from one of my windows (Preferably the long, floor to ceiling Pella south-east window). And the light through it as the sun was setting told me that this was the spot.  And this is the morning light through here in these shots.

If anyone can think of a perfect quote to add to this, I would love to know.

Walking Onions

Walking Onions

Do you or have you ever seen these?  They are just so lovely and elegant.

These are the beautiful seeds/babies of these winding, curvy bright green onions.  They are like big hollow chives but way cooler.  I have some other photos of these I’ll have to dig out.

Tinkerbell Fairy Wildflowers

Tinkerbell Fairy Wildflowers

I’m not positive what these are called but I love them.  They always remind me of a dear friend I use to know. Her name is Chris and we met in a watercolour painting class together back in 1984.  We use to go draw and paint together.  Fast friends right from the start and we both knew it instantly.  (Chris B I hope you are reading this and know it’s me).

BeLoved HollyHocks

BeLoved HollyHocks

For some reason in my early 20’s I didn’t think I liked hollyhocks, have no real recollection of why-not.  anyway…. I so love mine.  I’ve been trying for years to grow these wonderful graceful, bright, beautiful flowers.  I’ve have finally succeeded with this amazing bright pink one.

my newest bed this year.  California Poppies are one of very, very favorite flower and it’s another I’ve tried for years to grow up here at 8000 ft, dry high plateau garden.  This one’s getting the rain from the gutters and in almost full sun

Blue Mist love bush

Blue Mist love bush

I never knew about this bush until I came to New Mexico and I went on a tile job with my honey.  This client of Len’s had these hugh glowing purple bushes in the middle of the summer growing all over his property.  And I feel in love again (seems I love lots of flowers)  Hummingbirds were everywhere all over it.

My girlfriend Peggy sold me this one when she ran the Garden Center in Taos.  She knows so much and just amazes me with all the info she has about flowers, plants and design stored in her wonderful brain.

New Mexico can be so magical and sweet.

I thought this perfect for Friday Finds out of Kim Klassen’s blog.

Some of you may remember a post I did, last fall I think, of this White Mare.  I call her my El Salto Pony, from the big gorgeous mountain that she lives under.  If not here is the link to check her out in her autumn finery.

https://newmexicomtngirl.com/2011/09/04/when-first-i-saw-her-this-morning/

I am so blessed to have all I have in my life. I appreciate each and everyone of you who comes and visits,  even if just for a moment in your day.  I hope you say hello.

Peace n Abundance,

CheyAnne
