Salt Cedar on the Rio Chama

oil on panel

This painting was done by Abiquiu, NM by the Rio Chama. It is a plein air painting of the beautiful salt cedar bush. It is a terribly invasive plant that is choking lots of the river beds in New Mexico. But, I love the color and the texture that the plant produces!

Lama Yama 12×36

oil on panel

This plein air landscape painting was done up in the Lama area, some 20 miles north of Taos, NM. My good  friend has lived in this home her entire life. Her father built it over 60 years ago. It was one of the original homesteads in the area. I’m sure it’s been added onto over the years. It’s in a beautiful spot; set back against the trees.

This painting is at my home studio in Questa, NM. Press for purchase information.

This plein air painting was completed by Lama, New Mexico. It is some 17 miles north of Taos, close to an old burn scar. Every year the area turns yellow to red with the change of seasons. Red for the oak and yellow for the aspens.

This painting is located at my Questa home studio.
