Day Twenty Four: Desert Monsoon Season

"Desert Monsoon Season"
Little Gem
6x8 oil on canvas mounted
Six to go dear fans...did you hear...only six to go!

Obviously lots of prayers and wishes got answered this year as the rains came and came.  We are caught up for this year, but remain way down when adding in the previous years of drought.  So our water table remains too low.

It isn't very often I see storm clouds like this and it also isn't very often that it takes three weeks for a painting to dry.

This is our bosque area looking east to the Sandia mountains, part of the Rocky Mountain System.  Albuquerque's average elevation is 5000 feet.

  1. This is so beautiful!

    1. Thank you! Even the scrub brush when wet and well watered looks good! The thirty challenge has encouraged me to find beauty where before I thought it was all a bit dusty and brown.

    1. Oh, thank you. I love being told my painting is "gorgeous".

  3. You have captured the low lying clouds so perfectly in this one, Carol.
    Love the scrubby foliage.

  4. The clouds were exquisitely beautiful a few days ago. In fact, they were dropped dead gorgeous and called for a painting. I am glad you like the outcome.


Awwwww thanks for writing to me. You know I love your messages!
