The first of the New Mexico paintings.  These were all quick, simple paintings–they had to be, as I was painting outdoors and the light changed quickly!  This is my friend’s Nambe vase and the yellow rudbeckia wildflowers that grew in her backyard.  This was my first time to paint on this black clayboard–I love letting that black come through the background.  I’ll definitely experiment with that again!
