This oil landscape painting was done on location at the crack of dawn, just west of Cerro, NM. The sunlight was just starting to break over the mountains. A very chilly morning!
This church was built in the 1700’s and much of it is still original today. I got the opportunity to go inside this beautiful structure the other day and realized the floors are all original. Legend has it that there are people buried under the wood planks! The church is located on the High Road from Taos to Chimayo.
This painting was done going do the trail at Wild Rivers Recreation Area towards the Red River. It is a harsh country and the vegetation reflects it!
This painting is located at my home gallery in Questa, NM
