    This picture is from a film shoot in Old Town of "Galileo" (the working title) by L.A. based director Jay Silverman who is behind the camera. Other extras and I played various villager roles with me being a plein air artist. The movie is a romantic comedy loosely based on one of the heirs to the Taco Bell fortune falling for a woman chef in a small hypothetical town named Villa Nueva. Filming was done in Taos, Santa Fe, Albuquerque and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. The painting is a scene of one of the ridgelines in the Sandias.

This oil painting class with Tom Blazier will introduce students to the relationship between sky and ground and explore ways to impart luminosity to skies, strengthen compositions through effective placement of cloud shapes and enhance mood with creative use of color. Demonstrations will be done in oil. Sessions will meet in studio with some observational time spent outside. It is advised that students who take this class have a grasp of art fundamentals. Please contact Tom at tblazier@hotmail.com with questions. Please sign up early; class size is limited.
