Fall Splendor

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" When we behold the magnificent, colorful display of the turning leaves in fall, one has to consider the Creator is a true artist. How ironic that dying leaves exhibit such fall splendor. Perhaps nature shares the message of a beautiful mystery in change, in dying, that we can embrace without [...]

Aspen Vista

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" Come late September in New Mexico, the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains above Santa Fe begin to light up with the autumn shades of gold, yellow and orange. Everyone flocks to the fire on the mountain to hike in the colorful aspen trees, and to catch a glimpse of the [...]

Down The Hill

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" How can one not love autumn when all the trees turn such amazing colors? One crisp, fall day I went for a long walk on our Virginia farm. I was coming down the hill from the barn, and the trees lining the road were just on fire with oranges and red. [...]

Ojo Cottonwoods

Acrylic on canvas, 22"x28" We all love the Ojo valley not just because it's beautiful, but because it is home to some of the best mineral hot springs in the world. Driving to the hot springs in fall was the best as all the Ojo cottonwoods were in their golden glow. And on the way [...]

Ojo Meadow

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" There was a beautiful, lush meadow near the Ojo Caliente hot springs with a nice trail that went for a long ways along the creek. Sometimes when the autumn days were a little crisp, I would take a break from soaking and go for a walk in the Ojo meadow. It [...]

Along The Rio Grande

Chaco Canyon

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" Chaco Canyon is the most amazing Anasazi ruin in northwest New Mexico. This centralized pueblo was the thriving hub for thousands of Anasazis between 850 to 1250 A.D. The grand architecture of this pueblo, the complexity of the social and community life and extensive commerce exceeds anything ever seen before in [...]

Church In The Hills

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" I loved walking in the sandy arroyos in autumn when all the cottonwoods were glowing with gold, the chamisa was turning yellow, the purple wildflowers were bountiful and the mountains were showing their first snow. One crisp, fall day I got a great view of a church in the hills surrounded [...]

Passing the Bosque

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x30" I captured this scene passing the bosque with a sketch while driving down south in New Mexico. Bosque is the name in the southwest for a clustering of trees along the flood plains of riverbanks. This was in October when all the cottonwoods trees in the bosque were turning to [...]

Thanksgiving Field

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" It was a tradition on Thanksgiving day to take a long walk in the country before we sat down to stuff ourselves. This day was crisp and clear. The mountain was a brilliant, cobalt blue while the now bare trees cast purple glows. And the field, this Thanksgiving field, was still [...]
