Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on.
The ground we tread on has its own stories to tell. Check out the others who blog on this subject on Sundays in my sidebar.

In the meantime, I got permission from Lynn, to paint her little deary, Dooley. He is so cute, I just couldn't resist. I need to work a little more on the bottom below his collar, but otherwise, it is pretty well finished. There seems to be a little glow where the wet paint is. I love painting animals! They don't critique and never say what they don't like about a painting. LOL.
It's TOO LATE for Christmas, but I am available to paint your pet's portrait. Email me and we can discuss what you need.

We have about 2 inches of snow and lots of wind and cold. What do you have?

And then I stopped again at the corner..
and then I saw the light creeping up the power poles and shine on the elevator.
Wow, it doesn't get any better than that! As I drove west, of course, I left the sunrise scene, the clouds obliterated the sun, but I was more than glad I had the experience!

I hope to maybe return here in October next year, to capture the vivid colors of the Chamisa and the fall foliage...providing 'harvest' doesn't coincide.

This is the six little 6" x 6" cupcake oil paintings I did for our granddaughter's bedroom. We (hubster helped) framed a painted masonite board, then screwed the paintings into place from the back...I know some people like to hang them and move them around, however, not that many nail holes should be put into the wall it is going on. I think it turned out cute and I am ready to do more groups of six. Can't decide on the subject matter yet. Stay tuned.

These are some of the abandoned farmsteads that I saw on my way up to the fields, about 15 miles away.
I knew we would be going close to an area of national interest and controversy, the site of the Global Country of World Peace campus.
This is the only building completed on the outside. Next to it and in the next picture are skeletons of other buildings. You can read more about it below.
I do not subscribe to any of the statements or beliefs made by the citizens of the area I live in with respect to this operation. It is just damned interesting to view it as an 'observer of human nature'!! You can form your own opinions. As an outsider...I'll keep mine to myself. (Perhaps that says it.)
For art sake, check this out by Nov. 11 as there is a "Treasury" created by another artist on Etsy that you should see. It features art that compliments one another. My "Old Elm" is featured there. I like the look Donna created! See it here, http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=19861
