It's chile time here in Colorado.  We have great chiles in Pueblo, as well as wonderful chiles from
Hatch, NM (as shown here.)  Parking lots around town are filled with chiles freshly roasting.  The chile season is usually about 8 weeks, so the aroma lasts quite awhile.

We usually buy a 1/2 bushel of medium chiles. We freeze them in small amounts and use them in recipes throughout the year.

I've been blogging less this year. I post mostly on Instagram (which rolls over to my Fb site.).  Please visit me on Instagram.

While life as we knew it is now a bit different, I have been painting a lot during this pandemic.  Although my in person painting groups have not been meeting, I've taken several online painting classes which I loved!  I couldn't get over how helpful Adobe Photoshop is to artists!  It's great to be able to try out several colors without painting on a canvas.

The plein air events that I participate in were canceled and gallery exhibits have been online.  I'm so glad that we are now at least able to go back to galleries, if only with social distancing.

I am going to start sharing some of the paintings that I've created during my studio solitude, as well as throwing in some oldies, but goodies. 

I sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are in good spirits and staying healthy during this time.
