Today’s featured art gallery is Enchantment by Gayle Faucette.
I really enjoy the style and bright clear colors in this art gallery. The flowers of all colors are so pretty with a charm that captured my attention. Any of these works would make great framed prints for your wall.

This gallery includes my art depicting the beautiful and unique images that represent the American Southwest to me.
This is an acrylic painting of a barn on the Rio Grande Heritage Farm located inside the ABQ Biopark. The farm is a 1930's era year-round working farm. The barn is used for making apple cider and vinegar. I spent a day at the Biopark taking pictures one day and this was a scene just waiting to be painted.
Driving along a back road, I saw this strong adobe wall with this grand entrance. The sky was exceptionally blue and the Purple Sage and Spanish Broom were in full bloom everywhere. So, I couldn't resist adding those into the painting, reminding me of what a beautiful spring it was.
This is the first painting of a small series I will be working on around La Iglesia de San Ysidro (the Old Church) in Corrales, New Mexico. This portal is at the entrance of Casa San Ysidro, which is across the street from the church. Casa San Ysidro is an old adobe house that is now part of the Albuquerque Museum.
This little painting includes some of my favorite subjects I find in the Southwest - mountain views, charming adobe walls and hollyhocks!
Casa San Ysidro is located in Corrales, New Mexico, across from the Old San Ysidro Church. It is part of the Albuquerque Museum. It's such a quiet, peaceful place and one of my favorite places to sketch and take photos.
La Iglesia de San Ysidro is an old adobe church in Corrales, New Mexico. It is oftened referred to as "the Old Church". It was built around 1868, but is no longer used for services. It is one of many of the beautiful old adobe churches in this state.
This painting is of the view I saw walking through the portico of the convent building adjoining the San Felipe de Neri church. The cactus was not in bloom at the time, so I added the flowers for color. This is located in Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Each year in October, the sky is filled with the beauty of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. In this painting, I combined my love of cactus with colorful hot air balloons, against a backdrop of the Sandia Mountains.
"The Blue Door" is a familiar sight in New Mexico against the warm terracotta tones of adobe walls. Hollyhocks add a beautiful touch of color during the summer.
San Felipe de Neri is a beautiful old church located in Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico. The original church was built in 1706 and was located across the street. It crumbled due to heavy rains in 1792. It was rebuilt in 1793 in it's current location and is the oldest church in Albuquerque.
"The Green Door" is probably the last painting in my little trio of Southwestern style doorways. I titled them in Spanish simply because the words are more beautiful. The pink autumn sage is so pretty when in full bloom and is one of my favorite shrubs.
"The Red Door" is the first in a series of small paintings of Southwestern-style doorways, gates and adobe walls.
This painting depicts a peaceful courtyard scene on a warm summer morning in Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
This original acrylic painting on canvas began as a sketch of the Sandia Mountains around sunset, but evolved into something else when I decided to add the adobe wall. I especially like the adobe walls with the wagonwheels enclosed. People around here create some very charming adobe walls, gates and doorways
"Hollyhocks" is the final piece in my small series of paintings inspired by the San Felipe de Neri church. Hollyhocks thrive here in the New Mexico sunshine. I love the bright and varied colors against the earth tones of adobe walls.
This church is in Corrales, New Mexico and it is a favorite subject of mine. It was built around 1868, but is no longer used for services. It is one of the many beautiful old adobe churches in New Mexico.
This is my second and final painting of my mom's hens and biddies in their clay pots.
