Where have I been?

I’ve realized it’s been a while since I posted anything on this blog and it’s time to visit again!! I have been enjoying spending a lot of my time in Santa Fe, where having horses in the high desert has proven to be a wonderful thing. Not to mention painting in the amazing lighting, at this altitude, has been a welcome venture!
I’ve produced several watercolors for 2015 as well as a couple oils, one of which I’m sharing with you. The subject of this painting came to mind when I thought back on my younger days and having to haul a saddle out to my horse to go ride every day. Here in this painting I’m showing a 1960 Chevy Apache truck, with my saddle thrown over the side. The blanket underneath is a Navajo pattern. Tied to the back is an American Quarter Horse, representing muscle – just like that workhorse truck. The setting is beneath the Sangre de Cristo mountains where lighting blankets everything.
“Plenty of Horsepower”, an 21 x 34 oil on canvas, gallery wrap style- where the truck wraps around the side of the canvas.
