Roadrunners In The Sage

Acrylic on paper, 22"x30" It is kind of hard to see the roadrunners in the sage in this painting, and it's even harder to see them live in the high desert. They are everywhere, but your chances of actually seeing them are so rare because they are so fast and they blend. I got lucky [...]

View From Las Estrellas

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" This was my first home in Santa Fe, and it was like I had landed on another planet. I lived on a road that in Spanish means "the stars", and the view from Las Estrellas was incredible. I used to sit in this old, blue rocker from the front porch of [...]

Winter Magpies

Acrylic on paper, 10"x14" When I lived in Taos, the winter magpies would appear and fill this big, bare tree out the living room window. I would sit by the fire, and watch them swoop and dive and spin and soar in and out and around the tree for hours. It was an acrobatic show [...]

The Plum Tree

Acrylic on canvas, 24"x30" I dated a man who was a great gardener. We had a garden one summer that I found to be quite the challenge. If I had only known then what I know now! Towards the end of a very dry summer, the bears started coming down from the mountains looking for [...]

Summer View

Acrylic on canvas, 30"x40" I loved the late afternoons in New Mexico when the light would hit the mountains, and all kinds of shadows would come out to play in the summer view. All the colors of the flowering trees and perennials were a welcome addition to the stark browns and endless dark greens. Unframed. [...]

Summer Storm

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" I went to visit an artist once who wanted to show some paintings in my gallery. She said they were too big to bring in her car, and if I would come out to see them, she would make me lunch. I was always ready for an adventure. When I turned [...]

Anasazi Echoes

Acrylic on canvas, 24"x36" 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 [...]

Afternoon Apples

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" I did this painting while sitting on the front porch in late summer, watching the sun creep its way down in the west. I was looking at the afternoon apples on the trees, and wondering what new recipe I could make next. I had made apple salads, apple pie, apple pancakes, [...]

The Gorge

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" The gorge in Taos is something to behold the first time. It looks like a giant crack in the earth as it is a deep, narrow canyon through which the Rio Grande river runs. It cuts right through the mesa that runs west of Taos, and there are only two roads [...]

Portulaca

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" Portulaca is the perfect annual in the high desert since it is in the cactus family. It would bloom endless, vibrant colors from May until frost. I had pots of these blooming gems everywhere. Framed in brushed silver metal. Original Painting Portulaca $756.00 Giclee Prints 9"x 12" $108.00 14"x 20" $280.00 [...]
