This is an acrylic painting, 11" X 14". I enjoyed working on it and as always learned something new. This time I learned that I need to lighten up my sky color at the horizon before I paint the mountains. Apparently it doesn't work well if you try to do it after the painting is finished (according to my teacher).
More windmills - this is a photo I took from a different location in Mojave.

we two are one
soulmates joined on this journey
as I wrote in my tenth anniversary poem
so many years ago
we two are plus five
bringing our children together
they give us places to go
and people to see
both near and far
we two are two
celebrating our creativity
brainstorming ideas and titles
enjoying our separate interests
and sharing them with each other
the angels are still watching over us
still joining with us each Friday evening
as we sing to them
welcoming the Sabbath
blessing and being blessed
coming in and going out in peace
may we have many more songs
and many more years together
Happy anniversary my love

I did the painting from one of my photos in Israel. Kibbutz Ma'agan Micha'el has a beautiful cactus garden and I took many pictures when I was there in the winter. I like painting small animals and have other paintings and drawings of lizards, snakes etc. I have four more painting classes, then I'll be going back to some drawing classes during the summer months. There's always something new to learn and improve on with art classes.
We enjoyed our trip out west last week (visiting family) so I'll probably start on a new painting from my photos in Mojave (CA) and/or Nevada. The rocks and mountains at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada were beautiful, but I'd recommend going there when it's not as hot. The desert was between 90-100 degrees while we were out west. We did get to go swimming with the grandkids. Fun!
