Cactus Attack

It's been forever since I've blogged here, just started playing with cactus the other day. I have been playing with colors, mostly, because I found this great paper that lends itself perfectly to the desert landscapes I paint.

It's below zero outside and I've been sick this week so there's not much to do except paint. The sky is clear and the snow is bright, which makes great conditions for painting indoors.

While I'm scribbling I've been busy in the background, recently hung about a dozen paintings at Main Street Grill in Windsor and will soon be placing some in Tortilla Marissa's in Fort Collins.


  1. Alene I saw the link to your paintings on your
    main blog. I really like the colors of the top two paintings. They are vivid and beautiful.

    Have you ever considered doing a painting for a race? Like Hardrock. I don't think there is any monetary reward but they give the prints as a finishers award. Deb Pero and Jon McManus have done this.

    Keep up the good work.


  2. Thanks Matt, yes I did donate several paintings to the Javelina Jundred in one of the early years of the race, when Geri Kilgariff was still directing it. At some point I would consider doing that again.

    Most of my paintings are now available in giclee.
