An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
Well I have been painting in this area, and the folks that live in this house have seen me out and about. They were wondering what this guy ( me ) was up to. So as I was in back of my on the road studio set up, his wife told her husband," I think I will go for a walk and see what that guy is up to ". She walked by me...said hello , and checked out my painting in progress. Then down the road came her husband. He immediately was engrossed in what I was doing. This being Northern New Mexico, its pretty rural , and sometimes a tall white guy like myself stands out in a almost all hispanic area. We talked about art, life, my hito ( boy) and how beautiful this valley was. So after a little more time, he went back to the house and returned with 8 just cooked , on an open fire trout........This is for you and your Hito.....I thanked him and promised a small painting next time I was in the area........Fun painting.......fun visiting.........all because of a smile and plein aire painting!!!!!!!!!!
