October in Taos, NM

l to r: Judy Howells, Nelson Hubley, Coni Grant, Jana Van Wyk (me!)

A few weeks ago I snuck off for a few days to bask in the glorious Autumn weather in northern New Mexico.  I attended the opening of a show at the Millicent Rogers Museum where I had two paintings exhibited.  I also spent special time with friends from California, Nova Scotia, and Colorado (see above).

"Down Home" juried show at Raleigh Convention Center

Carolina Marsh 16x20 oil on linen

The painting "Carolina Marsh" (above) was juried into the "Down Home: Portraits of the Old North State" art show which opens tomorrow October 21, 2010 at the Raleigh Convention Center. I just dropped off the painting yesterday after framing it in a gorgeous black and gold frame which complements the painting very well. Stop by and enjoy the show!

Millicent Rogers Museum

Tomorrow I'm heading to New Mexico to see friends, attend the opening show of "The Spirit of Place" at Millicent Rogers Museum, and...   to bask in the magical energy and peace that is New Mexico.  See you at the show -  I'll be the one wearing cowboy boots with a denim mini skirt!
