Two of five

With the vigor that comes with fresh ideas and the thrill of discovery, I traveled yesterday to Patagonia, and then on to Sonoita. Both are south and east of Tubac, and are rich with hills and grasses and this clear, brilliant light.

I painted with abandon and what felt like total freedom. I painted with gobs and smears of paint, and I made five, yes five, paintings - going through so many tubes that I have to restock this morning. So I am off to Tucson, and then back to Sonoita. The yellow grass that stretches out for miles - it's calling to me.

Wow.... Carrie....your enthusiasm and energy really shows in these. I'm so envious you are able to paint on site! Maybe on my next trip I can shackle the prisoners to the bumper and take some time to pleine air.

I love that! Set the prisoners up with supplies and get them painting, too!
