Try, Try Again

Recently I tried a landscape that had been lurking in the back of my mind for months- and totally bombed it. I have a knack for this, as you'll know if you've been following me for long. I can ruin a landscape faster than most people can spill their milk. It's a gift.

Today I decided I'd better crawl back out of the hole of shame and give it another go. This is a favorite spot of mine on the road that winds up the western side of New Mexico. One goes around a sharp curve and- bam- there you are, smack in front of bluffs that never look the same as the last time you were here. The light is ever changing and filled with drama. It always catches me by surprise.

Posting successfully on Blogger from a phone is mostly a matter of luck, but I'll try to put the shot of progress on today's work and last week's disappointment, too. And thanks for stopping by! Alice

These are beautiful. You really don't ruin any thing.

Ah, Fred, one may work out like I envision, the other makes me cranky!! LOL

Thank you for the kind words.

Oh! I really like the rain storm painting! Isn't watercolor painting just that way - bomb one day and beauty the next! I'm glad you tried again!

It sure is! Thanks, Peggy.
