San Luis Valley Painters Present OUR TOWN

This show of work highlighting the San Luis Valley will hang all of March at Milagros Coffee House and Gallery in Alamosa.
The San Luis Valley Painters is a group loosely associated with my Painting classes and we hold a show every Spring in the Milagros Coffee House Gallery in downtown Alamosa. This year 12 Painters participated with 40 pieces, all in sizes less than 80 square inches and all very affordable.
At the reception, Judith Greenwood's piece "VFW Post 899, Alamosa" was voted Best in Show.  Bravo!
Judith's piece and much of the work in this show was painted en plein air, over the course of this last year in and around "our town".
Thank You to Milagros, not-for-profit coffee house;  a place where friends meet for conversation and coffee, musicians and writers gather, and tourists stop to shop.  It is Alamosa's living room and a natural place to share our work with the community.
20% of all proceeds from sales go to LaPuente which serves Alamosa in so many ways.
Thank You to the everyone who came out to support us, to view and buy work, and to all the painters who participated - Thank You!
This show will hang until March 29th, 2013.

Class Notes: More Drawing Challenges

It's another one of those.
I can't resist them - bikes, trikes, bowls;
here is more of what we have been painting in class.
I am over the fruit phase and am moving into a
things-on-wheels phase.
Thanks to Perla for bringing this sweet little rusty trike into class.
And the Pyrex bowls used to belong to my husband's grandmother; the apple - is history.
