"New Mexico Native"
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Mornings here in Las Cruces are beginning to feel a bit like Fall, although the trees haven't yet changed color.  The foliage, especially in the Valley near the river will soon look like this native. 
The Daily Paintworks website offers a weekly challenge to their members, and to anyone else interested in participating.  This painting below is my response to their challenge, in which the artist is to depict an emotion.  I chose to leave that emotion to the viewer......could it be joy, passion, contentment, or even sadness if they are parting?  I may join the website, although a painting a day is beyond my expectations....perhaps three times weekly?

Lucie will be featured in the Friday, November 2nd column, "Critter Corner" in the Las Cruces Sun-News.  I suspect she'll be expecting us to begin the "Lucie Squires Fan Club" when that gets out.  She's already waiting for the newspaper delivery person......

Stay tuned...........

Love the expressive brush work in the New Mexico Native painting.
The Emotion painting is a fabulous idea and I love the way you did the brush work on both dancer's legs.
As for the star of this blog, Lucie, posing like the Queen of England surveying her domain, well I will be her number one fan if she will pose for me.
