Day Twenty-Two: "Clouds Lifting"

Lifting Clouds
Little Gem
6x8 oil on canvas mounted
Can you believe I am within eight days of finishing the challenge.  I know I can do it now!

The state fair ends today here in Albuquerque and I am curious how the attendance has been.  We've had some rain during the fair, and desert people stay away from the fair when it rains.

But as you can see in my painting the clouds lift, and often the sun is out during the day.  The sorghum field is no longer bright yellow.

Sometimes I struggle with a painting; not this one.  There is more brushwork in this painting than palette knife, but both were used.

  1. Great painting and great attitude. I just wiped out my panel for #23! I took a break to view everyone else's progress, I'll have lunch and maybe I'll be able to pull it together. Just a study of a single apple and it's fighting me to the ground.

  2. Carol, this is beautiful. I love New Mexico skies!

  3. Thank you Cindy. I love your work too.


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