Well Tuesday was another quiet day with some painting for me and writing for Melissa.
I did these two this morning:
Autumn - Sangre de Christos - NM
11 x 8 on canvas panel done wet into wet with brush and palette knife. Living in Santa Fe NM for 5 years I did a lot of plein air paintings at about 9,700 feet above sea level in these very beautiful mountains.
12 x 9 on sheet canvas wet into wet - done with gusto and loose freedom of stroke. I had a lot of fun with this one - just applying paint with what
I call "WILD ABANDONMENT."

Later in the evening we went to an " Empty Bowls" charity function with our friends Nancy & Wayne. This event raises money for homeless children. $12 to get in and you got to choose a bowl as well as some nice soup and rolls. They had live music and it was really a nice time.
Well - this morning we are having our propane tank filled - a truck comes into the campground every Wednesday. We then have some grocery shopping to do and perhaps some more scouting around for condos to rent.
Soooo until next post - take care and enjoy life my friends.
