PLEIN AIR SOUTHWEST















"Pigeon Highrise" 12" x 16" oil/c


Heading out of Amarillo on your way to
New Mexico are a series of historical
grain elevators. Most have been replaced
but a few remain. I hope we never lose them.












"Navajo Fortress: 10" x 20" oil/c

Where the Navajo tribe made its final
stand against
the U.S. Calvary.

















"Near Panther's Creek" oil/c 9" x 12"

"Elena Canyon" 9" x 12" oil/c

This weekend is the culmination
of a year-long paint-out. There were
four paint-outs held in different locations.
In order to participate in the juried show
you had to at least make one of the
paint-outs. I made two. I went to Big Bend
National Park here in Texas and
Canyon De Chelly in Arizona.

I have entered four paintings into the
competition. Tomorrow Gay Faulkenbery
will be judging the show and the awards
will be presented at the opening tomorrow
night.

Saturday Kaye Franklin, Fran Eliisor
and I will be doing demos during the show.
I haven't decided what to demo yet. Guess
I need to be making a decision.

These canyons are really well done. You captured the value, color, light and shape. Good luck w/ the show.
