sage along the road

"Sage Along the Rd"
8x10 oil on canvas framed
Sage was painted while on a trip through the back roads of New Mexico.
The sun was almost down, the clouds were as blue grey as the mountains.
So serene. I love to capture the colors. One of my mentors told me to look and the colors were there.
Well, not...............
it has taken years to see the "colors".(more on this later).
this painting looks great grouped with other like paintings

      Hi, my name is BarbYates, I am a painter (sounds kind of like an AA meeting), and I guess we artist do have addictions, we need to create. I mostly paint outdoors(en plein air) in the beautiful Colorado landscape. I feel so lucky to walk out my door and see such beauty. I also paint flowers that grow in my garden, still life, animals and figures.
With this blog I will post paintings that will be sold to help Evergreen Animal Protective League. Many of these wonderful animals have shared their lives with me.(3 dogs live with me now)
