Sold at the Fuller Lodge Art Gallery. Abstracting the landscape of New Mexico.
Dynamic Symmetry Armature with (dotted) rabatment lines, that in the case of a 2:1 (Root 4:1) aspect ratio do cut the painting in half. We like the way the main diagonal from the upper left touches the top of the cliff. The middle cliff accidentally lies at the center line; this might make the painting too centered. But we liked the painting as is and didn’t want to make any changes. It does seem as if there are two focal point: the two cliffs just above and to the left of the center of the painting. Directional lines lead the viewer around the painting up and down the hills and cliffs. We think that the viewer can find a place to rest in the skies.

Sold 3/6 at the Marigold Gallery in Santa Fe. We have 4 Palo Verde trees in our home in Green Valley, Az. I have just been introduced to these beautiful trees, with green bark and magnificent yellow blossoms. Palo Verdes this year were supposed to be spectacular. Well, we'll wait for next year to compare. In the meantime I will have this painting (or photographs anyway, once it sells).

Golden Rectangle proportion (8/13); note part of the fibonacci series: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13…...The ratios approach the Golden Mean.
Sold Sept 16 at the Marigold Art Gallery on Canyon Road, Santa Fe, NM. www.marigoldarts.com. Trying to depict the wild sky of Ghost Ranch at sunset in this small painting (golden mean approximation ratio). I am thinking that I should tame it a bit, but I am going to live with it for awhile. Ghost Ranch is more serene than this painting depicts. But it might capture its history, the pulsing of the earth as it was created.
What do you think?
Sold 10/10 at the Marigold Gallery on Canyon Road. Palette Knife only (no brush). The intent is to capture the patterns and colors of the Aspens on our Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. I think that the patterns allow the viewer's eye to move around the painting. And the theme IS the full scope of the colors everywhere.. One issue might be that the texture of the sky is quite different from the rest of the painting. But this perhaps pushes the hills in front of the sky - or vice versa, pushes the sky back from the hills.

Sold 12/18/2021 . Painted during a Santa Fe Plein Air Festival, at my favorite painting spot on the Chama River, out near the Monastery. It was a beautiful time of day, late afternoon. I have seldom painted that late there since I always want to drive back on the precarious road before dark.
