O'KEEFE COUNTRY!



Here is the ink drawing I did in the parking lot of our cabins at 6 AM!  I couldn't manage to pull out the paint but I love how ink drawings look in this special book.  I take it with me when I travel to special places.  It is a wonderful reminder of some awesome trips.

Oh to work as beautifully with ink! This is a wonderful piece, Myrna! Gorgeous country!

I like this a lot - you don't need color when you draw this well :) And your watercolor landscape is really beautiful.

Myrna I love both of your Ghost Ranch paintings. The ink"sketch" is fabulous. What wonderful souvenirs of your trip. One of the nice things about living in Albuquerque is that we get to go to Ghost Ranch every once in a while. Last year in April we hiked up to Chimney Rock, quite a feat for a 69 year old. I wish I had known you were in the area. I love your work.

Hi Sharon, Lucky you to live in such an amazing part of the world! Congratulations on hiking to Chimney Rock. It looks daunting! I was happy to view it from afar!

Your design and linework are enchanting myrna, i hope you are well. what kind of sketch book are you working on? It looks like really nice paper. happy painting!

Hi Georgia, Thank you for your kind comment. I don't know exactly what this paper is but resembles a parchment look. It doesn't take watercolor but I love working with ink on this paper. It is a bound book that I take on my travels. A nice way to store memories.
