Three’s A Crowd Original by Wendy Dudley 10 x 12 $325
Who can resist a line of cows? They stop, watch you, and gather along the fence line to check out what you are doing. They make you feel important, as if you are the only thing they see and care about at that precise moment. I was inspired to paint Three’s A Crowd after a herd of cows made my day by lining up for a greeting, as captured in the photo posted with this blog item.

Here’s Looking At You, photo by Wendy Dudley
There is a special aspen tree in my valley that I have chosen as my world tree. I greet it each time I go for a walk, always seeing it in a different light and mood. And the changes to its cloak of leaves, as the seasons evolve. One day I placed my palm on its trunk, where it was grey and split, full of seams like the wrinkles of an ancient’s face. The marks of a life well lived. I could feel its pulse, and if I closed my eyes, I would start to rock back and forth on my feet. The next day, there were five green leaflets emerging from the very spot where I placed my hand. A special tree indeed. I have often thought it would be nice to perch in one of its branches, among its lush foliage, and observe the night world. These thoughts inspired this painting.

Moon Meditation Original by Wendy Dudley 10 x 12 $275
I live in a log home in the foothills of the Alberta Rockies in Western Canada. Further to the south of me, as in much further, are the mountain ranges of New Mexico. There are regions of New Mexico that remind me of my Canadian home, but still, I am drawn to the high desert county, and the various art and cultures in this Southwest state. So it is not unusual that its colours and themes seep into my work.
The Studio Cat Original by Wendy Dudley 10 x 12 $325
The feline in this art piece, called The Studio Cat, is modelled on my own orange cat, Kaila. She too often sits in the window, looking out, or if outside, balancing herself on the sill and looking in. If I were to have an adobe home in the Southwest, I imagine it would look like this, with Kaila ever-present in the window.

I often refer to the state of New Mexico as my second home, or my heart home. Its landscape, lighting, colours and cultures are a stung draw for the creative spirit. When I travel there, I always feel like I am returning to a place I lived in a long time ago. Whether studying the starry night skies of Chaco, scouting about the trails at Ghost Ranch, touring the northern Hispanic villages, or venturing into Zuni country, my heart pounds with the beauty. Thus, I often honour this in my paintings, as in this one called The High Road Home. For more information about this piece, or if interested in purchasing it, please contact me at email@example.com.
