I recall so clearly my very first visit to the high desert over twenty years ago. I thought it was the most desolate, brownest, most stark and barren land I had ever seen. I couldn't understand why or how people would choose to live here. Yet, I continued to come back to this barren [...]
Acrylic on canvas, 18"x36" New Mexico is beautiful after the snow falls, especially if the sun comes out and turns it all into a glistening paradise. I do not like the cold much, but I never minded the cold in the high desert. It can be really cold, but it just is not that bone [...]
