Will you be visiting Santa Fe, NM? There are so many amazing things to see in the city, from historical landmarks, top-notch restaurants, and an offering of art galleries that make Santa Fe one of the top art destinations in the country.
I am pleased to share that my art is represented by one of those galleries, Sorrel Sky. So when you come to our beautiful town, take a short walk just down the street from The Palace of the Governors to visit the gallery and view some of my latest works!
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.
See ya next time-
July 25 from 5-8 pm at 802 Canyon Road in Santa Fe, NM – Tamara Rymer and David DeVary Art Show!
2014 is the Year of the Horse, and I’d like to share what’s just off the easel-
“Lookin’ for Tadpoles”
Texas State Historical Assoc. online store is a great place to find Rymer prints! Organized in Austin on March 2, 1897, the Texas State Historical Association is the oldest learned society in the state. When you purchase a Rymer print through TSHA, you are helping fund this organization (home to the Texas Almanac and countless other literature offerings, as well as historical maps). Right now through Dec. 10, any print purchased will also get you a free package of the new 2013 Christmas cards. Visit http://shop.tshaonline.org/Tamara-Rymer-By-Artist-Fine-Art/b/5761611011 and thank you!
I am always interested in celebrating the horse in art, and there’s a show just for that purpose. Check out An Equine Jubilee at The Arts Castle in Delaware, Ohio Aug. 26 – Oct. 23. You can certainly visit in person, or go online to see the array of horse related art being offered up. You can also see this piece that will be displayed there called, “A Steady Gaze”.
