I have not painted much in the last month because I just have not felt like it. Shortly after getting over the flu it hit me that I had two shows in the next five weeks and one is less than two weeks away.
I have ample inventory of paintings but I had run out of my mission series. They are very popular and this is not a year to pass up any opportunity for a sale. So in the last week I have been working on five small mission paintings. The two below are 11 x 14.
The Abiquiu church is one of my favorites. I think this is my third version of it. They all sell.
But my newest find in churches is the one at Manzano. From the front it could be just anyone of the many adobe churches found in small towns around New Mexico. But I love the rear view. I did the first one at night, but I have another I am doing of this same view on a 12 x12 diagonal canvas but in the daytime.
MOON OVER MANZANO
I will be posting the other paintings I have completed another day. Started sketching out three possible more paintings. But I need to frame these first. The next ten days will go fast. The first fair of the season always hits me unawares.
