Soft pastel on R-tis-tx artist board, 8 x 10 inches. Framed in a brown wooden frame. Private collection, Magdalena, New Mexico.

 Jo's Pots

These are Bolivian flower pots that sit in the yard. No plants in them, so they won't crack and crumble. They remind me of the Cholitas, ladies, just sitting there waiting and talking. When you glance at them out of the corner of your eye, they seem alive and peaceful. Beautiful memories of Bolivia.

Pastel on Daler-Rowney navy blue paper, 5 x 7 inches. In private collection in Albuquerque.


 

Adobe Memories

The old adobe houses in New Mexico are so fascinating. New Mexico was so green this past summer. It showed all over the state, new growth and green everywhere. This close-up shows some of the texture and detail created with a palette knife.

Acrylic on canvas fixed on panel. 11 x 14 inches. Framed in a brushed blue wooden frame. In private collection in Albuquerque.


 

 Peppers Window

This is the window at Peppers Art Gallery in Magdalena, New Mexico. It is much like any window in the old adobe houses in the area. The walls are very thick, sometimes 18 inches or more. This creates such good insulation that the houses are cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Painted during a show at the gallery while Jo visited with customers and other artists. Another favorite of the artist. Read more about it here on the blog. It was also the featured painting on ArtBlogs4U the first week in January, 2007.

Pastel on Colourfix paper. 9.5 x 15 inches. In private collection in Magdalena, New Mexico.


 

 Sun Pears

Cactus pears are beautiful when in bloom and very good to eat. On a hot day riding horseback and working at the ranch, it was great to get off, pick a pear, rub the stickers off with your gloves and eat the juicy fruit. My mom never made jelly, but they are great for that. In Bolivia they were huge, called tuna. We would slice them like cucumbers and eat as a snack. Memories, memories.

Pastel on sanded paper. 4 x 6 inches. Door prize for show at Peppers Art Gallery, Magdalena, New Mexico, July, 2007.


 

Old Barn

This is a very typical barn in this part of Texas at the edge of the Lost Pines. There is something comforting about an old barn filled with memories. Wildflowers in the spring liven up the landscape.

St. Mary Magdalene Church

This church painting is of the church in Magdalena, New Mexico. The church was never finished and is a basement with a roof. The snow was in December 2006. The skies in Magdalena are spectacular. Must have something to do with the mountain air and altitude of near 7,000 ft.

Tulip Cup

This set of dishes, "Tulip Time" was purchased in the seventies when Jo's family was going to Bolivia the first time.

Little Powwow Dancer

This is one of the dancers at the powwow in Austin. (Scroll down to see He Dances and She Dances) She was getting ready for a grand entry or one of the blanket dances where everyone, even the audience, dances. Such a beautiful sight.

Pastel on Ampersand Pastelbord.11 x 14 inches. Framed with no mat.

 Old and New

Actually both pots in the pen and ink drawing are pretty old. The taller pot is from the Acoma area and was purchased in about 1960. The round pot was found about 85 years ago. It was buried in a trail and Jo's father thought it was a piece of pottery. When he tried to pick it up, it was a complete bowl. The age has not been determined. The drawing is about 2.5 inches square so the frame is about 6 inches square. This was created for a gift and is in New Mexico.

Call the Crisis Center for information about their programs and to purchase tickets. 512 321-7760

The paintings are about 2 x 3 inches. Watercolor. Jo chose to paint the bluebonnets in the pines as most paint them in the oak trees. There are lots of bluebonnets in the piney woods. They are the State Flower of Texas. They will be ornaments on the tree donated by the Bastrop Fine Arts Guild. Artists painted the small bluebonnet paintings for the 7 foot white tree. It will be decorated in blue and silver. The tree should be a hit and hopefully make some money for the Crisis Center. Photos later in my blog.


 Shipping Pens

These are the shipping pens at the "Trails End" in Magdalena, New Mexico. They have not been used for many years, but at one time the railroad moved many cattle and sheep from the area. Cattle and sheep were brought from Arizona and western New Mexico on the Driveway, a fenced trail for the drives. Fall was a busy time in Jo's home town. Many, many memories here.
