Southwest Contemporary Artist

16 December 2009 —  Worked all day yesterday on the foreground, after putting dark glazes (burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and burnt umber) on the walls.  There is a heavy impasto in the foreground – added cadmium red and cadmium yellow to Permalba White for the snow.  This is the stage of a painting where I could happily quit — my mind races ahead to the completed canvas — what I want it to look like – and the painting really has a mind of it’s own — in a way it tells me what needs to be done.  It’s a very strange collaboration!  DC – Taos
