SouthWest Paintings

For the last 15 years I’ve gone to Santa Fe, every summer to teach painting  work shops. While I’m in Santa Fe, I see beautiful things and take pictures, I do Plein Air water colors and drawings in my sketchbooks. I take these pictures to my studio and I use them as my inspiration to create my paintings. I’m inspired mostly by the vibrant colors in the SouthWest and also the wonderful energy I feel when I’m there. Land of Enchantment 18 x 24 oil by Cathy Carey I’m in a galler
