So first, my friend Edwardine brought over some apricot laden branches from her tree. I left for Dallas soon after so I brought the branches with me. The apricots ripened beautifully. Today I made a small painting of some of the apricots, then I made Apricot Pinot Grigio jam. As soon as the jam cooled, my husband and I had brie on crackers with apricot jam. It was delicious!
This is a plein air painting that I did of the stream that comes down from the ski valley in Taos, NM. I spent three days painting with my friend around the Taos area last August. There is nothing like spending the day by a beautiful stream.
This is a commission I recently completed for the world famous Marine Cargo Insurance Agency, Rekerdres and Sons. Yes, that's my husband. He insures cocoa traveling from all parts of the world, among other things. This painting will hang in a conference room at his office.
