Evening Song


Evening Song
20 x 24 Mixed Media on Canvas

This is the painting I finished today. It is of the Manzano Mission I have painted before but in a much smaller format. I once painted all my canyons large and all my churches small. But on a lark I painted a small canyon picture and a large church picture and both of them have sold.

I am working on five new paintings and this was the first completed. I hope to have at least two more done tomorrow. And the last two on Friday. Then I have to dedicate the next three days to making frames for four of them and two other paintings that need framed. This is all for the Music From Angel Fire Reception at Artspace Gallery on Thursday.

I have ideas for another two paintings but they will have to wait until after the reception on the 27th. Besides which I need more stretcher bars for the two new ones.

  1. Cool. This church seems to project a feeling of life within, as if there's some kind of concert or get together that's making it burst with light from inside out. Good luck on all your projects.

  2. Yes, I agree, there is a feeling of unseen activity. And I like the motion in the tree that seems picked up by the sky. Very nice!

  3. Very nice. I like your signature swirly skies and the huge sun. The colours are vibrant and fresh and contribute to the movement perceived.
    (PS: I really like the graveyard too!)

  4. Yes I commented on the colours in this painting somewhere else?
    and Nicholas V spoke of the swirly skies which is an element I am also drawn to.
    Lovely..

  6. Your Missions are fascinating. I see one of my favourites on the side bar here, Silent Night.

  7. Wanted to let you know the title is not Silent Night. I have now fixed that. It is Lamentations of the Spirits.
