# 243 After Glow


A valley town off the "high road" in the mountains of New Mexico after sunset. I think this town is Llano, but I am not sure, there are so many hamlet style towns they are hard to keep straight. Oil 12.00" x 18.00" email jon@jonconkey.com for purchase info.

Stunning! I love the moods you're able to put into your paintings.

Julie,

Thank you for the encouraging words.

Hi Jon,
I'm really impressed with your paintings. It looks like you've made a big leap forward; I notice it starting around the time of that painting called "Night Tracks." Your paintings look more confident and sophisitcated (by that, I mean variation and control in brushwork, subtle and effective color). I can't wait to see what you do in 2007; no doubt it will be a banner year for you.

This one is great, Jon. The bluish palette is beautiful and I love the paint handling on the road and trees. A++

Leslie,

I am touched by your kind words...I will be doing quite a bit of travel in 2007, hopefully, it will put me on the map.

Cheers

Tony,

I almost thought this one was a loss; due to the mess I created. It just shows that color and composition are the essence of a good painting.

Best
