As you can see- my eph key is still not working. Ater checking or errant Cheetos ragments and much ussing and uming and a it or two--we will be buying a new board when we get to SA!

For the Greenhouse Competition in May 2012, I have to enter paintings that have not been offered for sale before. So I am holding back on this series of Taos paintings so I can legally enter them in that show. Seems like a hardship for artists to hold back on sales, but I suppose the gallery wants to say these have never been offered for sale before. I'm not sure I agree with that approach, but that is how it is. This painting was a lesson in simplifying all that mountain enough so that the viewer is still interested in the foreground area--but still facinated by the mountain. Its a visual tension that I think makes a painting lively!
