Riding Through - And Getting to Tubac

Riding Through
Oil on canvas, 30x30
Please email me for price and availability

Yes, this painting is like another I did recently, but this one is on a white canvas, as opposed to a black canvas. I thought that what I loved about that first one was the black canvas, and so I was hesitant to try it on white, but I wanted to see how it would work. And I love it! What do you think? Which do you prefer?

I MADE IT to Tubac, AZ, in a marathon four-day drive. I left Wednesday around 10 in the morning and got to my dad's place Saturday around 8 p.m. Texas was again the longest part of the drive, physically and spiritually. But overall, it was pretty easy. I'm here for a few days before heading to Indio, California, for the Southwest Arts Festival, which starts on Friday. 

The first show of the season! I'm pretty excited.

THE SPONSOR LIST for this trip has grown, and I couldn't be happier. It makes a huge difference to know that I already have a bunch of paintings sold - and gas money in my pocket. I love knowing that the paintings I am making already have homes. It makes the experience, which always is one of joy, even that much better.

 Here's the van, all packed - with "Riding Through" still drying! 
Think I brought enough stuff?

Dogs of the Day
 

Yes, my dogs again. That's Woody at the top and Jojo at the bottom. I miss them! Peter titled these "no ambition," and I think that about says it all.

Carrie,
I compared the two paintings and decided I like this one better . I think it apprears brighter with more light. It is gorgeous,

Thanks, Patricia! My husband likes the bright one better, too. I am still not sure. It's like they are totally different paintings - and of course, they are, but you know what I mean. It's like a started in a different place, and I didn't!
