I did this painting last year on the day of my marathon paintout.  The photo was taken at a gallery in Trucas (on the High Road from Chimayo to Taos) and I just couldn't help but paint it.  The day of the marathon, I started at 5:30 a.m. and ended at 9:00 p.m., never getting up from the easel except to get a drink of water.  LOVED it!

I am amazed at the lavendar in the landscapes in New Mexico.  Every time I see them, of course,
I have to paint them.  I love lavendar!

This California Winery caught my eye and I fell in love with it.  This painting recently sold and its new home is the perfect spot for such a warm and inviting place.  Cheers!

Chama River, View from the Bridge

                            Acrylic on Canvas
                                  $ 500

The Southwest is a true inspiration to me!  I enjoying spending summers in the mountains, enjoying the scenery from the expansive vistas to the small, intimate towns along the highways and bi-ways.  I know there are a lot of reds in the landscapes, I decided to let my creativity flow with a cooler palette.
