|"Mighty Mini 3.5x2.5" Oil canvas paper|
"An artist is always alone - if he is an artist.
No, what the artist needs is loneliness."
— Henry Miller
"On the road again, going places that we've been before"...Yep, we've headed back on down the highway...and "looking for adventure." We arrived in Santa Fe yesterday, greeted by this dynamic sky hovering above the mountains.
I had a rough start the day before we left having a molar extracted. I was so woozy trying to pack, I forgot all kinds of things. So, while Dave is out trying to find —a few basic supplies like—a coffee pot, eating utensils, food and toilet paper, I've been sitting alone in the camper painting this mini—2.5x3.5", slightly bigger than a business card— painting above. I've never painted so small, but wanted to enter the Daily PaintWorks, "Paint It Small Challenge." Sorry I don't have my scanner, so I will be photographing my work while on the road which means they will be blurry.
I did want to say thank you to all of you who have sent me such lovely and heartfelt congratulations on being chosen DPW's Spotlight Artist of the Week. I appreciate so much, all of your thoughts which give me great encouragement. I've never been interviewed before, so this was really fun.
Thank you for viewing my painting from out west today.
