Southwest Art Magazine


Southwest Art Magazine contacted me a while ago asking if they could use one of my still life paintings in their Dec. issue. I just received a couple of complimentry copies and am delighted. The article is about food paintings and wow, they gave me a whole page.

Today i thought i would go out and do a plein air since the weather was so beautiful. This is the Tumacocori Mission about 2 miles from here. It was so nice to paint outside, now that the weather is better here in the desert i will do this more often.
