The Land of Enchantment Landscapes

  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 [...]

Prayer For The Lost Ruins

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x36" I had a beautiful ranch once, and beautiful dreams of what could be possible. There were old ruins under big, ancient cottonwood trees with sweeping vistas in all directions. This land captured my heart, as did the man with whom I bought it. But life had other plans, and I [...]

Desert Water Bearer

Aqua oil on canvas, 30"x40" This image was in the dream of a friend of mine when he came to visit me from Maine. He told me of the dream, and said he thought it represented my life in the desert at the time. So I painted the urn with the water overflowing out of [...]

Ghost Dancers Dream

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x48" I went with a girlfriend in summertime to camp on the land beneath Pedernal near Abiqiu. It was incredible. We slept out in the open under the stars, and had a small fire going when we went to sleep. I had a ghost dancers dream where the ghosts surrounded me. [...]

Rain Offering

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x60" I lived on a beautiful ranch once south of Santa Fe in New Mexico. This was the view from my art studio there. It was one of those extremely dry summers when the monsoons came with nothing but a tease of rain. We were all waiting for the clouds to [...]

Galisteo

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" Galisteo is a special village in New Mexico at the heart of the pristine Galisteo basin. It was the first place I landed on my first visit to the land of enchantment. I lived in many other surrounding areas, but for whatever reason, my heart always found it's way back here. [...]

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 [...]

Along The Rio Grande

Acrylic on canvas, 24"x36" There are so many lovely, tranquil spots along the Rio Grande river to stop, fish, sit, picnic, swim, think. I would go to the river every chance I got.
