SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL / iPhone 6+ / PhotoForge 2

We had to make a quick trip to Santa Fe today. The drive down was the best show we've seen in terms of golden cottonwoods. Simply beautiful. All the way from Taos to Santa Fe. Did you notice the moon?

A great lunch with Cousin Ann Lawrence at La Fonda was followed by necessary shopping and errands and we're back home, tired but smiling after a nice, uninterrupted day together.





RANCH HOUSE Daily Painting #804


Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

If you would like to own this painting, just email your bid to: bid@johnfarnsworth.com

This might be or have been the home of a ranch foreman and his family. Surrounded by Cottonwoods, Chamisa and low lying Juniper, not to mention the occasional rattlesnake. His children might be home schooled, but they also had the advantage of learning ranching, animal husbandry and management of a small business. They would have the opportunity, as well, to learn horsemanship and cowboyin'. Warm summer nights sleeping on the screened porch, the smells of Mom's good home cooking, the sound of cicadas, water from the well, and Christmas around the old stone fireplace, all make for good memories and good character.
