SEDUCED BY SOUTHWEST SHADOWS

Over the past few weeks three of my paintings have left for new homes.  I'll really miss my Banjo Baby and the other two were souvenirs of pleasant travels. So now I have to get busy refilling the shelves of my Etsy Shop.

I've just finished and listed "Southwest Shadows."

This painting is of the Estrella Del Norte Vineyard which we visited on our way along the High Road from Santa Fe to Taos, New Mexico this summer.  The sunlight and shadows of the Southwest are so different from the high dry country where I live and the misty hues of the Pacific Northwest, another place I love to visit.

 I put my greens and blues away and brought out the lavender, turquoise, gold and yellow to illustrate a warm afternoon in the rustic old west.

I wonder how people to move far away do acclimate to their new scenery. I wonder if I could.
