Placitas by Marcy Brennan

Placitas by Marcy Brennan - 8" x 10" oil on canvas board - SOLD

This was my submission to the Let's Paint New Mexico blog this month.  Placitas is a quaint little village on the north side of the Sandia Mountains by Albuquerque, NM.  It's such a sweet and peaceful place, not far from Albuquerque, but like another world away from the hustle and bustle of the large city.  I always dreamed of building an adobe home and retiring there to paint and live in the beautiful, peaceful surroundings.

This is my submission for February's Virtual Paintout Blog using photos from Google Street View.  It is Camino Real in Valparaiso, Chile.  I had fun painting the bright red fence and buildings against the dark green backdrop of trees and the curvy road.

Pond at Adam's Ranch by Marcy Brennan

Pond at Adam's Ranch - 5" x 7" watercolor and ink on paper - $25

I painted this piece last Saturday at Adam's Ranch.  Each year, the owners open 1100 acres of their ranch to local artists to come out and paint their beautiful land.  I scouted the whole area and took loads of pictures for painting later before settling on this little pond created by a sulfur springs.  I set up in a nice wooden pole hut that overlooked the pond. The smell of the sulfur water took me back to my grandmother's farm in northeast Florida.  So the peaceful setting, perfect weather and reminder of my grandmother made for a perfect afternoon of painting!

$25 - email me if you are interested in this painting.
