LIFE ON THE EDGE

A lone house sits near the Rio Grande Gorge, southeast of Taos, New Mexico. I shot this with, my iPhone, through the car window, as “the Dudes” Steve Immel, Steve Bundy and I were speeding by on our way to Española to photograph a Lowrider Car Show, yesterday. More on that, later.

LONE PINE, FORT DEFIANCE, ARIZONA

LONE PINE, FORT DEFIANCE, ARIZONA / Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ30 / Snapseed

As I was exploring the red rock formations between Window Rock and Fort Defiance, last June, I noticed this solitary pine tree, framed by a wall of rock and bathed in the light of early evening.

Sorry, can't stay and visit. Gotta get that catalog for my March show at Sorrel Sky in Santa Fe wrapped up and off to the printer for a proof, finish packing, or should I say unpacking, as I endeavor to travel ever more lightly, and finishing other projects that don't travel well.

Hasta mañana.

Along the road from Taos to Santa Fe, as it winds its way through the canyon carved by the Rio Grande, there is a grove of cottonwood trees. The focal point of this group is the standing remains of a large cottonwood, scarred and burnt by lightning.

I've never passed it without thinking, “I should paint that”.

I finally did, and I'm glad I did, as it won't always be standing there. Now it can continue to stand in this small painting.

Please tell a friend and remember, these little gems make terrific gifts.

GRAZING Daily Painting #799

We spotted these horses grazing near Abiquiu Lake on our first day out. I liked the way the foreground hill side and the tree framed the horses and made them seem even farther away.

We left Parker, Arizona late this morning, crossed the Colorado River into California and the small former settlement of Rice. Formerly a watering station on the railroad during the days of steam locomotives, then a section house for track crews, it was more recently a service station, and probably a store and cafe. Little remains of Rice, but we both enjoyed photographing what was left.
