Arrived in Red Rock

We left home in a steady soaking downpour to drive through showers and breezes all the way to Vegas. We are about 20 minutes north of the strip up against some beautiful desert mountains. Last night we went to the Bellagio to see a Monet exhibit at their art gallery. How wonderful to see these amazing paintings in relative solitude, compared to most museum venues. We each had the opportunity to stand alone, multiple times, before each painting, marveling at the thickness of the paint and his brilliant use of color. Just incredible.
Here are some photos

I took yesterday. The first one is the view from our room. The second one is from on the road. The clouds put on a real show.
Now I'm off to watch some painters paint!

3 Landscapes

I'm posting 3 today because I'm going to be out of town for a  few days and wanted to show what I've been up to the last two weeks. On April 28, the Laguna Plein Air Painter's Association is having their 6th Annual "Less is More Show", which features small paintings. I entered the 3 paintings below. I won't know for a couple of more days which if any of them will be juried in; at least one for sure. The show will be up at the Randy Higbee Gallery in Costa Mesa from April 28 - May 12. 102 Kalmus, Costa Mesa CA.

Trabuco Overlook 8x10 $750

Late Morning at Big Bend 8x10 $750

El Moro Cove Shadows 9x12 $800

Wish me luck!
In the meantime, I hope to post at least a couple of times from out in the Red Rock Canyon, outside of Las Vegas.
