No where, that's where.  But I've had lots of great
company, and lots of great help getting my yard ready for
Spring and Summer.
To get back in the swing (and the palette), I decided to swing into Spring
with this floral painting in the "fractured" technique....

Lucie is recovering from the excitement of having friends in
the house to play with.  She says " back with you soon".
Her naps (morning, afternoon and evening) are all running together!
Stay tuned.....

We were attending a barbeque at a ranch close to the Organ Mountains,
 here in Las Cruces, when the sun started down. 
This magic was revealed.
Lucie and I didn't have our walk today.  It is very windy, and although
the sun is shining beautifully, the wind is quite cold.
We're a couple of woosies, so we'll try again tomorrow. 
The very good news about Las Cruces is that our weather is usually
so much better than that anywhere else, we don't complain (much).
Stay tuned.....

"Rio Grande Theatre"
8"x6"     Oil  
This is a study for a show coming up in May featuring "Main Street, Las Cruces NM". 
The Rio Grande Theatre has been designated an historic building...
the only restored two-story adobe theatre in the U.S. 
A 422-seat facility with state-of-the-art equipment, it is operated by
 the Dona Ana Arts Council, and is considered the "Jewel in the Crown
of Downtown Las Cruces".
I love this building.....I spent many hours here as a Board member of the
Arts Council.  As the subject for a small painting for the upcoming
show, however, it requires lots of detail work.   
Shall I?  or shall I select a subject that doesn't require 
my nose to be on the canvas? 
Stay tuned.......
