well friends, it has been quite a long while ~ six months almost to the day ~ forgive me the very long delay ~ I have been immersed in several creative projects that have demanded my focus ~ but there’s also the Truth that I am happiest when my time looking at little screens is minimal. . still, many of you have become friends thanks to this maddening platform & like it or not, here is our meeting place. so it seemed time to show my face again ~ and though I rather loathe selfies, here am I with coffee & poetry along the rio grande ~ good morning. . a bit more about what I’ve been up to: one of my most satisfying (and time-consuming) projects this new year has been the creation of my “Tuesday Dawnings” — artful weekly messages of beauty, creativity & inspiration that I send out to a growing circle of like-minded life travelers who, in this oftentimes dark world, seek a tonic of light & uplift ~ you can find more details via the link in my profile ~ if you care to join my weekly circle (it’s free), you’ll receive from me a little gift of my downloadable “TaosDawn's Daily Practices for Cultivating Calm, Clarity, Curiosity & Creativity” ~ more about that, too, via the profile link. . ok. time now to turn off my little screen and step out into the day... . blessings to you good people. ~ a glorious summer ~ glorious life ~ awaits.... . l’ll be back soon... I promise. 🎨❤️ . . . . #taosdawn #dawnchandler #dawnchandlerart #tuesdaydawnings

‘we wandered to know’ ~ by dawn chandler ~ oil & mixed media on panel ~ 10” x 20 ~ ~ ~ ii of iv paintings that sold the other night to a midnight art shopper ~ this is one of my earliest 'textual landscapes' where I merge traditional landscape elements with passages of abstraction as well as text ~ with these earliest works though, the main 'abstract' element is those inexplicable gold lines (folds of a memory?) ~ the scene is in ute park, new mexico... we're sitting on a friend's porch, gazing at baldy mountain (the highest peak of the philmont ranch) watching morning stretch across, first illuminating baldy's summit, then, eventually opening up the ridges and valleys to light ~ I sat there wrapped in a blanket silently watching the day awaken for several hours that morning ~ that was some years ago, and it still stands out as one of the most serene mornings I have known.... ~ incidentally the text in this work comes from robert service's poem, 'the call of the wild' . . #gratitude #blessedbetheartlovers #artloversrock . . . . . #dawnchandlerart #utepark #philmont #travelnm #newmexico #contemporarylandscape #landscapepainting #abstractlandscape #contemporaryart #santafeartist #santafeart #newmexicoartist #newmexicoart #doitforjoy #artistsofinstagram #artistife #painterslife #artworks #artcollector #wallartdecor #lookaround #namaste #morninglight #dawnchandler #taosdawn #🎨

~ quick 20-minute sketch during yesterday’s early morning power hike along the dale ball trails just north of santa fe ~ thought I was doomed when I realized 1) I didn’t have a pre-stained panel with me & 2) I had no mineral spirits for cleaning my brush [😣] ~ so.... made do without! 😎 (note to self: maybe use unstained panels & forget the brush cleaner more often..? 🤔🤓🎨🙌] . . . . . #pleinair #plein_air_forum #paintingoutside #oilpainter #landscapepainting #landscape_lover #landscape_hunter #santafenm #simplysantafe #newmexicolove #newmexicotrue #newmexicomagazine #optoutside #lookaround #ponder #stayandwonder #santafeart #santafeartist #newmexicoart #newmexicoartist #explorenewmexico #exploremore #morninghike #hikinggirl #mymorningview #dawnchandler #dawnchandlerart #taosdawn
