The Long Return

The Long Return  22x26 mixed media on canvas
I am always thrilled when I call a painting done. This one was actually finished after this picture was taken. There were some minor details I changed after it posed for this picture. I like the afternoon light in my studio best for photographs of my work. And I like them taken with the camera mounted on the tripod and the aperture setting so no flash. If you are going to be picky about your work you should be picky about how you record it too.

I am entering this piece into the Old Pass Gallery's New Mexico Women Artists March show. Wish me luck.


  1. I love it, love it, love it. You changed the colours? I thought it was darker. You changed the title?

  2. There is two. One is the long walk and it is 25 by 15. I posted it in a blog below. Then there is The Long Return which is 22 by 26. The smaller one was a study for the larger. But I like both. They are slightly different in color, but both of my "darker" period.


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
