A new LINK- High Desert Painters

I am very excited to announce a new LINK to this blog; one I hope you will check out from time to time: High Desert Painters. This is an international plein air group that I helped form - together with Jana Van Wyk, of North Carolina and Janis Loverin of New Mexico. The group also includes: Nelson Hubley form Novia Scotia, Judy Howells and Nita Harper, both from California. We are all plein air painters who have enjoyed painting together for several years and are committed to encouraging one another as professionals. Our varied places of origin and distinctive painting styles create a breadth in the group from traditional to contemporary.

Painting with the High Desert Painters

I painted this piece one afternoon last October during our annual gathering at Ghost Ranch; a magical place and so beautiful in the fall. The painter in the scene is Jana Van Wyk who was painting in the hot sun across the road from me.
I was very pleased when this piece was juried into the PAAC, Plein Air Artists Colorado, Show that opened in Denver July 11th at the Abend Gallery. The entire catalog of work can be viewed online at www.abendgallery.com. Check it out.
