An Artist’s Palette

My last post was about Leo Neufeld, an Albuquerque artist who spends some time here in Truth or Consequences.  I like his portraits and his landscapes (here’s his website), but my favorite Leo Neufeld creation is his palette.  He has used it for 30 years.

Leo Neufeld

It’s so nice to see plein air painters, and it was especially nice to watch Leo Neufeld painting on the streets in town last week.  He did a fine portrait of a fire hydrant outside of Studio de la Luz on Broadway.  He often does wonderful portraits of people as you can see on his website.

His work will be shown at Rio Bravo Gallery next month.  I don’t know if the fire hydrant painting will be there.  I hope so.

Yucca Bud with Snow

The yucca blossom was a little surprised by the snow a few weeks ago.  I’m happy to report that it seems to be in good health today.  Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, USA.
