Abiquiu Adobe by Rachel K Schlueter

Oil on 7x9 panel
Painted quick as I could...Pressed for time because we had an appointment to tour the great Georgia O'Keeffe's home a bit later. This is my excuse for unintentionally leaving out a most important element in the composition, the three huge crosses that stand to the right of the holy place. I dove into the painting without sketching for size and see what happens? I was so dang excited about being this close to Georgia O'Keeffe! I'm going back to paint it again and as a thank you donate it to the local library if it's good enough.

Blind Man's Bluff by Rachel K Schlueter

Oil on 6x9" panel
The bluffs outside Creede CO are quite beautiful. This subject fascinates me more than anything. It's a lot like portraiture, for me. Focusing in, and leaving the sky out just popped into my head and I went with it. Painting en plain air is always a thrill.

HAYING TIME by Kathy O'Leary

Painted  on location during a recent visit to South Eastern Oregon near Steens Mountain.  Beautiful high desert country,  lots of wildlife, including wild mustang horses. Most ranches in this region have been in the same family for generations.  I loved this simple scene soaked by the late afternoon sun.  This piece is 9 x 12, oil on panel.

"Silver Mine, Shack" by RK Schlueter



9x12" oil on panel
Not typical of what I would normally choose to paint. It was Stock's idea to paint this crazy place. I went along to see what the challenge might yield. After all this whole year is about stepping outside the norm. I've observed a pattern of mine which is throw myself into chaos and see what happens.
 Anyway, I like the paining. And I think it was just a good day painting. I could be standing in front of my dream landscape and fail miserably. This is what makes painting a great adventure. It's all or nothing and sometimes it's nothing at all.

"Shelter Cove Bluffs," by Alicia Tredway

8 x 10 oil on panel.  Our plein air group met at Shelter Cove this time.  The weather was pretty stable with occasional fog and clearings.  This is another subject I don't have much experience with.  A plus having each a turn at where to paint.  Forces one to try new thing and be open...a surefire  way to grow. Painting is available through DailyPaintWorks here

Sunny Morning at Hurdygurdy Creek by Andrew Daniel


I just put the final touches on the piece from our trip to the South Fork of the Smith River. I was standing on a bluff overlooking Hurdygurdy Creek with Rick Tolley, Antoinette Toni Magyar, and John Crater. The sun was blazing hot at 10:00 in the morning. We painted until we were about to drop from heat stroke both mornings, then went down to swim in the cool water!
