Plein Air Santa Fe (2016) - Sedona and Grand Canyon

I know I have not posted in a long time, but I have been painting.  Here are paintings I did in June in New Mexico and then in Arizona.

First I was honored once again to paint in the Santa Fe Plein Air Festival.  This is alway a great event and I get to paint in some of my favaorite locations.

This was our little casita in Santa Fe, even with a St. Francis in front!!  Was a great location and walking distance to the plaza.

Santa Fe was so much fun, and I loved sharing the time with my good friend and painting buddie, Terry d Chacon.  Cheers to Santa Fe, NM.    

After the paint out was over in Santa Fe, our other painting buddie, Nita Harper joined us and we drove to Flagstaff to stay with Terry's good friend Elaine, who was a great hostes, and came with us to Sedona and the Grand Canyon.
