Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches
One day, after driving Thea to Albuquerque to catch a flight to Phoenix to visit her sister, I headed north. Midway back to Santa Fe, I took a road off to the right that I'd long been curious about. The road turned south and ducked under the old Santa Fe railroad (now the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe) tracks, then around again to the east. Grazing cattle, a couple of wild horses and beautful blood purple blooming staghorn cholla beneath a wild and stormy, rain and promise filled sky, made for a fun photo interlude. This little painting, too is from that enjoyable afternoon, watching the traffic hurrying up and down La Bajada in the distance, oblivious, in their rush, to all the beauty, magestic and simple, so nearby.
NOTE! I have a special new WORKSHOP coming up in July. Click HERE for details. I hope you can join us.
