|"Mountain monsoon," 8 x 12 watercolor, 140 lb. paper|
How to escape the heat storm hitting 111 degrees here tomorrow?
Only in my imagination of course. and I think of my favorite New Mexico Mountains, the Truchas peaks, and the blue and gray monsoon thunderheads towering up late in the morning and spreading into the afternoon.
You can see them building in the late morning, from far away, and then they dominate the sky and landscapes, bringing cool shade and weather and rain to the high country, and down into the valleys of the high desert.
So here's today's watercolor, painting the Truchas from memory, combined with thunderheads we saw on trips a few years ago--I'm always taking photos of them--fascinating infinite colors and shapes, changing every moment.
From my paintings this week, you can tell where my mind and heart are, hunkered down with memories, as the heat climbs.
