Just finished “The Flute Player of Taos”.



The Flute Player of Taos for web page

This painting was a joy to paint. Perhaps remembering the lovely sunny day that I took this photo was behind my inspiration. Taos is a beautiful place and this flute player’s music adds to the experience.

I love color.

It was all about “Color Play” with this landscape that became a seascape.  I wanted to create a “feeling” or “expression using color” to convey the beauty that surrounds us.  It was painted without a “visual cue” which is something new for me.  It is a painting that evolved from memories of the mountains in North Carolina.

When a friend saw it she felt it looked more like ocean waves…….so it became “Wishing I was Whale Watching”.

Ocean View ready for web page
