Lavender House

acrylic on paper 9"x12"
Ever since I discovered artist Jim Wagner's work in Taos I have wanted to paint "primitive", which to me means simple, somewhat awkward and heartfelt.  I haven't quite figured it out yet, but I'll get there.  This house is in National City in a spot where there are others of interest. I want to go back there.

New Mexico Redux

Sometime in the '90's I visited New Mexico and was enchanted by this piece of architecture.  These are the photos I took then.

On my recent trip, in Old Town Albuquerque, I found myself eating in an outdoor patio restaurant and facing the same adobe wall.  I was again fascinated,took photos and sketched, not remembering my previous interest until I came home and hauled out the New Mexico album from long ago!

Fleeing to the Sea

Our unusually warm weather
takes me back to the islands of  Hawaii
where the BEST weather lives
in a mansion of scented air.
