I painted this on my Rio Fernando property in Taos Canyon. The orange and red colors are scrub oak. Golden aspen leaves have always reminded me of butterflies when they begin fluttering and floating to the earth in the autumn.
This field of sunflowers is on Kit Carson Road on the way up to Taos Canyon. The field was completely full of sunflowers and they were so dazzling in the bright sunlight that they looked like they were pure gold. The field was so beautiful that I had a hard time deciding which direction I wanted to paint in. Taos mountain sits right behind the golden sunflowers.
This spring the Texas Hill Country was absolutely gorgeous! After the generous spring rains wildflowers were everywhere and they were stunning. This painting was inspired by the wildflowers that I saw on a photo shoot. The day we drove through the “Hill Country” to see the wildflowers was sunny and bright, causing the wildflowers to shimmer in the sunlight. There were places along the road and in the fields that had so many white prickly poppies growing, it actually looked like it had snowed flowers. The white prickly poppies were so tall that they actually poked their heads up through the top of the fences. The thistles and black eyed susans dotted the fields with color. All of these flowers were mingled with the abundant blue bonnets and Indian paint brush. It was a magical day filled with dazzling colors, which I have tried to capture on this canvas.

This painting was done on location at the Overland Sheepskin Company in Taos, New Mexico. There is the most amazing garden there right now and its in full bloom. The garden is stunning and I had a lot of trouble even deciding which parts of it I wanted to paint. The flowers are hollyhocks, some of my favorites.
