Embudo, NM - Original Acrylic on Paper by Marcy Brennan

Embudo, NM - 11"x14" acrylic on paper - $80

I used to live in New Mexico and this is one of my favorite areas. It's on the road to Taos from Santa Fe. There was a nice restaurant called Embudo Station set along the river that we would stop at for lunch on our trip. The cottonwoods and hills surrounding the place were simply enchanting. I can't believe I've never painted this all these years.

Think Pink - Acrylic on Paper by Marcy Brennan

Think Pink - Acrylic on 11"x14" Paper - $80

This is a studio painting from a photo I took a few weeks ago while at White City Park plain air painting.  I love my time painting outside on site, but I don't love working in acrylics in the field.  It's simply too much stuff to lug around and the acrylics dry way too fast outside.  I usually work in oils (on very small canvases) or watercolors in the field and work in acrylics in the studio.

This was a fun challenge in mixing the various shades of green in the lovely lily pads.
