This week Karen Halbert and I are participating in the "High on Taos" Plein Air Painters of New Mexico Paint out and Show. Yesterday morning we got up and out very early and painted on site at the St Francis of Assis Church in Rancho de Taos, NM. We both chose to paint close to the church and had a wonderful spot to set up in the courtyard under the trees with benches to sit on.
Four and a half hours later I had one painting completed and Karen had completed two.
This morning I chose two of the four paintings I completed between Monday morning and Wednesday morning, slipped them in the frames I had shipped from NC, and delivered them to the gallery. Tomorrow night Rob, the owner of the gallery, will hang the paintings for the opening on Saturday, August 1.
This show will be judged by Ray Vinella and features works from 50 artists painted on site in and aroundTaos between July 24 and July 30. See you at the show at Wilder-Nightingale Gallery!
