#31 Taos Mountain

***May 2006's theme is "Landscapes"; after seeing so many wonderful settings to paint, the call of nature wins out; studying the textures of nature I find exceptionally challenging: spring flowers have come late this year so I will paint them another month....
One day after crossing the John Dunn Bridge, and then driving north for about 20 miles on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere, these pink and blue mountains appeared with the afternoon sun. JLC

I love this painting. Each spring I love watching the hills here change colors from week to week. This week they remind me of dusty purple. Last week they were sage green.

Oh yeah, I meant to tell you that the butterfly eggs arrived today! The kids are so excited. It will be chaos tomorrow when they actually start observing them!

Butterfies are showing up everywhere around here Monarchs, TigerSwallowTails, Mourning Cloaks; everytime time I see one, I think of your students and their project.
