New on My Easel, Day 2

I spent just a little time in the studio today due to illnesses in the family.  But I did get some color spread around the canvas--enough that I can now start building on it.  Also, I think I have a mood expressed that I'd like to try to keep.  Stay tuned.

New on My Easel

I've started a new canvas--just sketched in.  The painting is based on a photo that I snapped while my husband and I were visiting Zuni, New Mexico last spring on our way to Santa Fe and Taos.  We lodged at a bed and breakfast in Zuni Pueblo for a couple of nights and briefly explored the area.  

The subject of the painting is Corn Mountain.  The area has its mystery and magic.  I hope to convey some of that mystery in my work.  I'll post more photos of the work as it progresses, so come back and visit my blog again.  You can see more of my work on my website at
