I have been trying to paint the New Mexico desert where my mom grew up. This is one of several paintings that I have been working on.

I really love this, Cathy--the colors, the way you let the watercolor do what it does! I knew, before I read your comments, that it was NM--just by the colors, I think, that pink; I went there for the first time last Oct. and look forward to going back.

Laura thanks,and thanks for adding me to your a blog,an honor!. On this painting,which I continue to paint over and over, I followed some of the tips and the palette suggestions on Carpenter's blog site, which was linked thru Sandy Maudlin's blog. Anyway,Carpenter had taken a Carol Carter workshop and the emphasis was on warm and cool colors and oh my goodness, as I am sure you are well aware of, Carter's paintings are delicious!

Ohhhhh, look at those colours! So beautiful! I've never been to New Mexico - or even to a real desert before - but I hear the colours are incredible. Will you be giving this painting to your mom?

This work is just beautiful.. so flowing.. it could be translated into many mediums... looks like dyed silk too!
