During the summer monsoon - if it arrives as it is suppose to - the magic that takes place in the deserts is nothing short of amazing. EVERYTHING BLOOMS - the colors are amazing it is a sight to be seen. However this does not happen every year as the Southwest goes through some very frequent "droughts!!"
If you are fortunate to see a desert monsoon blooming - it is a sight you will not forget.
12 x 18 - acid free heavy linen paper - Professional Chroma Interactive acrylics - big brushes - spontaneity and gusto in a loose painterly style.

12 x 18
This is representative of the high desert in Taos NM
The program DOC MARTIN which airs on PBS is one of our favorite shows! The location in England in which it is filmed is Port Isaac - but - the name is changed for TV to Port Wenn. For those of you who watch it perhaps this painting will have meaning.
18 x 24 - heavy linen paper - large brushes 2 1/2 inch - done quickly in a "semi" painterly style. The ocean side and country side are both equally very beautiful and the program makes sure it highlights both of these areas.
12 x 16 on acid free heavy linen paper - alla prima using professional Chroma Interactive acrylics in a painterly style with full arm strokes using bright - bold - sassy colors with a 2 1/2 inch brush with lots of gusto.
