Five Shots: Part 3, Paintings


I wish I could paint landscapes. Instead, I’ll cheat and jazz up the washed out/mediocre shots and transform them into watercolors with my camera. If I could paint the Mogollon Rim, these would be my paintings:






Which one do you like best?

  1. Pretty good cheat if you ask me!


  2. 2 and 3 are my favourites Cindy. Some reminded me of the ‘paint-by-numbers’ sets from my youth. They certainly do look ‘painted’ though.
    Best wishes, Pete.


    1. Paint by numbers is all I’d be capable of. Thanks, Pete.


  3. These are awesome, hey it’s ok to *cheat* 😀 My fave is the second to last.


    1. Thanks, my friend, for your vote. I liked that one second best. The orange rocks are something. 🙂


  4. Wow, Cindy, I love them all – and I too wish I had the wherewithal to paint. But these photos are lovely. And if I had to pick I’d say #2. There’s something daring and inviting and very private about the rock ledge. A sort of ‘if you dare’ type of offer.


    1. Shelley! Nice to see you midweek :). Yes, I like the second one as well–I thought exactly the same thing–I dare you to stand on me!


  5. To be honest, I think they are all pretty good. You have real talent here!


    1. Hi John, LOL. Good at cheating, that is 😉


  6. What lovely paintings, they are all really good. Excellent work!


    1. Thanks, Paul. When you can’t do it the right way, sometimes the wrong way still feels like an accomplishment.

  7. I just wish that I could draw or paint and my fave is No2.


    1. Hi! Mine, too! Yes, I wish I had that kind of talent. I can only pretend 😉


  8. These are stunning. I love the first one!


    1. There were so many colors and textures and space. I was in heaven. I told Jim to toss my ashes here as I did the ‘Last of the Mohicans’s final scene on the cliff top.
