.....A Couple of New Ones.........

"Callejon Cruz del Pueblo" 28x22ins. oil on canvas
I always love painting on this calle - no traffic! -it's always quiet and beautiful and the folks who live up there all seem to understand what we're doing. A hard climb to get up there without benefit of taxi but worth it. All you can hear is a distant, white, city noise, overlayed by bird song. I think this painting kind of sums up what I feel about the place.

"Across the Rio Laja" 24x36ins. oil on canvas
This scene is right where the Rio Laja spills into the Presa Allende. The town is actually quite nearby but you'd never know it from over the other side of the river, - another quiet, enchanting place. I was trying very hard to get the air and the passing cloud shadows happening in this one.
